Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Ukrainian citizens in Poland, whose aim is to exaggerate Polish-Ukrainian tensions and portray Ukraine as a country without any perspectives, forcing people to work in conditions similar to slavery in other countries.

The original story is taken from the Polish radio website. Its heading says: 'The Polish border service controls the legality of the employment of foreigners'. There is no evidence about 'big cleansing' or 'massive inspections' among the Ukrainian workers, or problems for Ukrainians to get their salaries.

According to the National Bank of Poland, in 2017, there were about 900.000 citizens of Ukraine living and working in Poland, who transferred approximately 8,6 billion PLN (2 billion EUR) to Ukraine.
