WARSAW, January 11. /TASS/. The Polish Foreign Ministry finishes the first stage of evacuation of ethnic Poles from Ukraine’s embattled Donbass, in which 162 people have already been moved to Ukraine’s north-eastern city of Kharkiv and 20 more are due to arrive shortly.
According to Deputy Foreign Minister Conrad Pavlik, several people refused to be evacuated at the last moment. Others will be brought to Poland within the next few days, he said.
According to the Polish Foreign Ministry, about 4,000 ethnic Poles lived in eastern Ukraine before the start of a conflict. Most have left the region by now, and about 200 are staying in the zone of a military operation at the moment. They will be getting money from the Polish Foreign Ministry.
For those who have opted to leave for Poland, language and professional courses will be organized.
