Ukrainians in Poland have paid €2B in taxes, three times more than the country spends on refugees.
Since the beginning of the war, refugees from Ukraine have paid €2B in Polish taxes. This is three times more than the country has spent on costs associated with displaced Ukrainians. This data was provided by Professor Maciej Duszczyk from the Migration Research Center of the University of Warsaw, reports ukrayina.pl. Duszczyk believes Poland has no right to complain that helping Ukrainians costs the country. “We spent 3.5 billion zlotys (€750M) to help Ukrainians, but the calculations of the vice president of the Polish Development Fund, Bartosz Marchuk, show that we received 10 billion zlotys (€2B) from the taxes they paid,” the expert noted. In the case of Ukrainian refugees, Poland spends a lot, but it receives even more, Maciej Duszyk believes.
