2. Non Ukrainian refugees face exclusion and discrimination, warn aid groups.

Amid the wave of support provided to Ukrainian refugees who have been arriving in Poland, aid groups have warned that non-Ukrainians who have fled from Ukraine are facing a number of additional challenges, including legal exclusion from certain forms of help and racial discrimination.

Among the more than 1.3 million people to have crossed from Ukraine into Poland , around 6% are not Ukrainian nationals, according to figures from the Polish border guard. They include significant numbers of African and Asian students.

In one of the large reception centres near the border with Ukraine, in the town of Młyny, a large group of non-Ukrainian refugees was stuck for days, reports TOK FM. Most were nationals of Syria, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and India. [ EU Debates | eudebates.tv]
