Polish Ambassador to the United States on the War in Ukraine and the Refugee Crisis


Marek Magierowski:

This is a very important point, because you have to be very careful.

And I can only echo the words of, for example, the NATO Secretary General and many other Western political leaders who warn of a hypothetical potential escalation, in light of Russian aggression against Ukraine.

We must continue to deliver advanced weapons to Ukraine. The US administration is now talking about transferring long-range defense systems to Ukraine, which is a very good sign and a very positive development. Poland is also helping Ukraine in this humanitarian crisis, although Poland is not doing it — our response has been truly exceptional.

And this outpouring of solidarity and sympathy towards Ukrainians was truly remarkable. But Poland is filling up. So we are – now many mayors of Polish cities are in talks with their European counterparts about the possibility of relocating these refugees.

But we are doing our best. We are doing what we can to ease tensions and provide humanitarian assistance to all, as you rightly noted, the more than two million refugees who have already arrived in Poland.
