UK and Poland want to build temporary villages for displaced Ukrainians. The United Kingdom and Poland are going to build two temporary villages in Ukraine together. The British government announced this today. The villages, one of which will be located close to Lviv and the other near Poltava, should provide shelter for Ukrainians who lost their homes as a result of the war.
The UK hopes to use the villages to ensure that more Ukrainians can be accommodated in the country itself. British families have housed about 118 thousand Ukrainians since the beginning of the Russian invasion. But according to Downing Street, it is becoming more and more complicated to find a permanent place of residence for the fleeing Ukrainians.
The UK is committed to the project and has promised to release 10 million pounds, converted to more than 11.3 million euros, for the villages. Nevertheless, only a very small part of the displaced people can go there: the villages each have room for about 700 people. How much Poland will contribute to the project is not yet known.
