Duda emphasized that after the start of the full-scale invasion, the Poles received the Ukrainians “very warmly”.
“People gave away their apartments, literally shared their bread. The Polish state assumed certain expenses, we supported our entrepreneurs, invested money.”
We calculated that all aid to Ukraine in 2022 amounted to about 1.5% of our GDP, 7-8 billion dollars. It’s big money, we didn’t get European help for it,” said the Polish president.
