The Polish Border Guard Agency wrote on its Twitter account that 141,500 people had crossed the border in the past day alone, compared to 142,000 on Sunday.

Ninety percent of the asylum seekers in Poland are Ukrainian citizens, mostly women and children.

An education expert estimates that 40% of refugees have already left Poland for other countries.

Poland is a second home for Ukrainian refugees, with an estimated 1 million to 2 million Ukrainians currently living in Poland.

Thousands of Polish citizens are sheltering these people in their homes, and the Polish government is going to enact new legislation in this regard.
