As Ukrainians fleeing the war continue to head to the border with Poland, Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski has said that the city has reached its capacity to accept refugees, and if there is another wave, Europe and the US will have to step in and share the burden.
Speaking to The Indian Express, Trzaskowski said the Russian invasion has proven Poland’s stand right, and Europe needs to be more assertive against Russian President Vladimir Putin. Ukraine, he said, is also fighting for Poland’s freedom.
“We are at capacity, we cannot accept 100,000 more refugees,” he said.
Trzaskowski, who has also worked as the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs for a year, called Putin a “war criminal” and said India must stand united with Western democracies against Russia.
“We would expect India to be with us, and to support a strongly narrow stance against dictatorship and against people who are war criminals.”
