Severnaker added at a press conference that among those who entered Poland were 9,000 who entered since seven o’clock on Saturday morning, according to “Reuters”.
“Since seven o’clock in the morning, the Ukrainian side closed part of the car lanes and allowed the passage of pedestrians. This queue must be reduced on the Ukrainian side,” Zevernaker said.
The largest Ukrainian community in the region lives in Poland, a member of the European Union, numbering about one million people, and it has seen refugees gather on its borders since the start of the Russian invasion.
Ukraine has western borders with Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Moldova and Romania, and these countries have reported the arrival of Ukrainian refugees in recent days.
On Friday, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said that more than 100,000 Ukrainians have arrived in neighboring countries, including Romania, Moldova and Poland.
Romania says that on the first day of the war it received 10,000 people from Romania.
The United Nations estimated that the new war would cause 5 million Ukrainians to flee the territory of Ukraine.
