The publication also writes that we are talking about the “500+” and “300+” benefits, which are paid in Poland for each child. But Polish law prohibits Ukrainian refugees from leaving Poland more than 30 days after receiving the allowance or it will have to be returned.
Practice shows that parents with children came from Ukraine to Poland only for the purpose of obtaining benefits, after which they immediately left the country. At the moment, the country’s authorities have managed to return only about eight thousand dollars.
Data from Poland’s Interior Ministry shows that one and a half million Ukrainians who arrived in the country have been issued with special identification numbers that allow them to live, study, work and receive social benefits legally in the republic. Of these, 1.2 million remained in the country.
