The reason for the eviction was the poor living conditions. The authorities terminated the contract with the owner of the building located on Varshavskaya Street. And the refugees were asked to leave their facilities until the end of July. This option did not suit the Ukrainians. “And if they take us somewhere far away? We’ll have to start all over again,” says one of the neighbors, who introduces herself as Tatiana.
According to her, the authorities offered them to move to buildings located outside of Poznan. The petition sent to Governor Mikhail Zelinsky contains the words: “Please forgive us.”
The deputy director of the Department of Local Security and Crisis Management, Valdemar Paternoga, reminded the citizens of Ukraine of the humanitarian aid they are providing. “If you are looking for support or security, then this is not for us,” he added.
One of the refugees complained that his children would be changing schools for the third time in a year. To this, the official replied that Poles also have children.
