It is a symbolic bar which represents only part of the drama which is played out in Ukraine.

According to its border guards, Poland announced at 7 p.m. GMT on Sunday that it had seen more than a million Ukrainians cross the border since the start of the war.

"It's a million human tragedies, a million people driven from their homes by war" since February 24, according to a statement on Twitter.

“A million people who have heard the border guards tell them, once they have crossed the border, 'you are safe'”.

Poland, victim of blackmailing immigrants from Belarus a few months ago, feels particularly concerned by the war led by Vladimir Putin.

A surge of solidarity has spread across the country in the face of the influx of refugees.

Authorities facilitated border formalities and organized reception centers while thousands of individual volunteers provided meals, transport and accommodation in their homes across the country.

Everywhere, in town halls, churches, schools or sports centers, people have brought a lot of food, hygiene products, clothes and blankets.

At railway stations in major cities, for example in Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw, dozens of volunteers waited for refugees as they got off the train to inform them of accommodation options and other forms of assistance.

Many schools have already opened their doors to Ukrainian children, women and children constituting the vast majority of refugees, men being likely to be mobilized in Ukraine.
