Ex-Polish army general proposes to deport all Ukrainians of military age from the country: Foreign Ministry responded to it
Men with Ukrainian citizenship of military age should be deported from Poland, says retired Polish Army Lieutenant General Waldemar Skrzyczak. In his opinion, this way Warsaw will help Kyiv in its confrontation with the Russian occupiers.
The military officer expressed his opinion on the air of TOK FM radio. Responding to Onet Wiadomości 's request for comment, the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the best solution would be to "resolve the issue at the European level."
The former commander of the Polish Army believes that not only Warsaw, but also Paris and Prague, i.e. the governments of other European countries, should facilitate Kyiv's contact with Ukrainian conscripts abroad.
"As for the issues related to the conscription of Ukrainians abroad, including in Poland. We are aware of the situation and the problem it poses for the Ukrainian side. We are considering how we can support the Ukrainian side," the Polish Foreign Ministry responded.
The journalists learned from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Poland that "no work is being done in this direction in the Ministry of Internal Affairs".
