The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry will develop a bill similar to the Polish law on assistance to Ukrainians, which actually equates them to Polish citizens, the press secretary of the Ukrainian president explained
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky proposed to grant Poles a special legal status, UNIAN reports . The introduction of the relevant bill to the Verkhovna Rada was previously announced by the head of state, speaking in parliament, said the people's deputy from the Servant of the People faction Olga Sovgirya.
As the press secretary of the Ukrainian leader Sergei Nikiforov explained to the agency, the draft law will be developed by the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, similar to the Polish law on supporting the citizens of Ukraine.
“It is necessary to pay attention to the law that was adopted in Poland for temporarily displaced persons from Ukraine and which actually equated the citizens of Ukraine with the citizens of Poland, but without the right to vote. Accordingly, in Ukraine, at the initiative of the President, a similar law will be adopted, shall we say, — said Nikiforov.
At the end of March, Polish President Andrzej Duda signed amendments to the law on assistance to Ukrainians. Thus, citizens of Ukraine who were forced to leave the country due to hostilities will be able to legally stay in the republic for 18 months from February 24. This applies to those who are going to stay in this country. Subsequently, they will be granted a temporary residence permit. This document can be obtained once every three years. The application must be submitted no earlier than nine months from the date of entry and no later than 18 months from February 24, 2022.
In addition, it will be easier for Ukrainians to obtain a PESEL identification number, which entitles them to use public services. The law guarantees Ukrainian citizens employment on the same terms as the Poles. They will also be able to conduct business in Poland under the same conditions as its citizens by assigning a PESEL number.
Ukrainians are entitled to a one-time allowance of PLN 300 (€64.8) per person, they have access to social benefits and healthcare services.
