About 1.5 million Ukrainians work in Poland, which is three times the number of working in the country in 2014,
said Andriy Deschytsia, Ukraine’s ambassador to Poland, speaking at the Ukraine 30. Human Capital Forum yesterday. Over the period 2014 – 2021, the number of Ukrainian-owned companies has increased exponentially: from 680 in 2014 to 16,000 today. With many Ukrainians planning to go home to retire, the two countries are working a bilateral social security pact. About 50,000 Ukrainian students also study at Polish universities.
