In this episode of The Debrief, we take a look at Poland’s gargantuan humanitarian efforts as more than 2 million Ukrainians take refuge in the country.

In the show, John Beauchamp talks to Dr Dorota Heidrich, a specialist on forced migration and refugees at Warsaw University, about how Poland has coped with such a wave of migration since Russia invaded Ukraine in late February.

We also look at the continuing border crisis with Belarus and Poland’s need to come up with a coherent migration policy.
