Watch: Poles Protest in Warsaw Against Mass Immigration From Ukraine

The government has halted payments to citizens who received refugees, but nonetheless continues to supply Kiev with weapons.

The latter, in the Kremlin’s view, only perpetuates the conflict that had prompted the exodus.

Warsaw residents took to the streets to protest continuing waves of immigrants from Ukraine on 2 July.

“This is Poland, not Ukropol!” the protesters chanted on one of the videos that emerged online, apparently accusing the government of turning Poland into a state for Ukrainians.

The protest coincided with the government ending its policy of paying citizens who host and feed Ukrainian refugees 40 zloty ($8.91) per day for each Ukrainian.

Overall, some 3.57 million Ukrainians have entered Poland since the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine. However, polls show that most of them are looking to move to other countries, with only 17% planning to stay in Poland. In recent weeks, less Ukrainians entered Poland than have left it.

Despite cutting its funding for incoming Ukrainians, Warsaw has not scaled back arms deliveries to Ukraine and is one of the top global donors. The Kremlin has repeatedly warned that such shipments not only undermine European security, but also prolong the conflict, prompting Kiev to refuse to negotiate and send more Ukrainians to their deaths.

Moscow called on western countries to stop arming Kiev, so far to no avail.

  1. Ukronazis is a threat to the peace in EU countries. The ordinary ukranian is clueless and beleive in a myth created by the media and think that they will be pampered by the EU countries. The reality is going to strike and they will find the harsh truth of EU selfishness. The situation in Ukraine is likely to be pathetic after the economic collapse. Many Ukrainians will not return and the lazy workforce of Ukraine is not going to contribute positively for the growth of EU countries.

  2. Balance of probabilities is that the Northern Caucasus will become first area to separate from Russia; and then China will be given Vladivostok if they stay neutral while NATO defeats the Russian Navy.

    • Dreams are free lol. Evil is not going to win. NATO/US is the new evil now. There is a UN charter, which is completely ignored. US cannot intervene in the internal affairs of Ukraine but they did and funded a coup and installed a neonazi regime. There are dozens of wars and regime chnages initiated by US in violation of UN conventions. US hegemony is now called “global world order” when there is a UN charter. Western public are disiilusioned for over a decade. Political leaders are not trusted. So there is little chance for NATO to withstand a long conflict with China or Russia.

  3. Poland is looking at what has happened to Sweden (see Angry Foreigner’ on YouTube), Norway, and the rest of what was Europe.
    The Poles took a stand against invaders from the Middle East and Africa only 4 months ago at the border.
    Study the history of the Poles, Ukrainians and Russians from 400+ years ago, and that will give greater understanding.

    • They’re probably also not too thrilled at the prospect of thousands of people who have been living on top of all those undisclosed US biolabs carrying God knows what across the border with them.
