According to her, at the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the Galeria Krakowska Center provided support to 40,000 Ukrainian citizens every day, and more than 500 volunteers in Krakow continue to provide daily assistance to Ukrainians.
"I am grateful to the government of the Republic of Poland, the citizens of Poland and the volunteers for their help to our citizens during their stay in Poland. I would like to express special gratitude to the Consul General of Ukraine in Krakow and the staff of the Consulate General, who provide a full range of consular services on a daily basis, necessary for our citizens who left the country because of the war. Glory to Ukraine!” The ombudsman wrote.
