Zelensky submits bill to grant Poles special legal status in Ukraine

President Volodymyr Zelensky has submitted a proposed law to parliament that would grant Polish citizens special legal status in Ukraine, as a show of gratitude for the help Poland has provided since Russia’s invasion.

According to the bill, Poles residing on Ukrainian territory would for 18 months be granted the same social benefits as Ukrainians, be allowed to work or run businesses in the country without special permits, and receive access to healthcare and education.

“We have reached the highest level of trust and cooperation in our relations with Poland, not only in terms of the last decades but for many generations of our peoples,” said Zelensky in a video posted on Facebook. “And we need to strengthen our relations in all areas.”
