Ukrainians Occupy the Worst Jobs in Poland and are Enslaved

Summary of Disinformation

Ukrainians occupy the worst jobs in Poland and are enslaved.


No evidence given. 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.

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.

Other statistics say that three-fourths of the Ukrainians earn over 2500 PLN net a month, which is approximately 70% of Polish average monthly income. 15 percent of Ukrainians in Poland earn a Polish average or more.
