Poland sends Ukrainians back

Excerpt from www.adnkronos.com

(06.10.2023) Poland is sending men back to Ukraine who fled the country at the start of the war and could be conscripted into the armed forces due to their age. The authorities in Warsaw have begun extraditing Ukrainian citizens liable for military service who fled the country illegally after the start of the Russian invasion on 24 February 2022.

The authorities estimate that around 80,000 people from Ukraine are not registered. "This is a significant number for Ukraine, because these people could be mobilised and reinforce the troops on the front line," said Fyodor Venislavski, spokesman for the Ukrainian president in the Verkhovna Rada.
