Someone told me something the other day and I yes wondering if anyone here can confirm or deny it.
Apparently some Ukrainians are entitled to Polish passports because they have Polish ancestry or due to changes in borders etc. But it is said that a lot of Ukrainians who don't really qualify for Polosh passports get them fraudulently, then move to the Uk or elsewhere in the EU using these documents. Someone said they think 1 in 10 of the Poles in Birtain is really Ukrainian and that the numbers will rise due to the crisis in this country.
Could this be true? Or is. It just some rubbish from the Daily Mail?
It's rather 2nd thing. Who could get Polish passport got it long time ago. Now Ukrainians get mostly Karta Polaka, which allows only work and studying in Poland, but it's not an Passport. There is also group who get Polish visa for work - it's easy to obtain for Ukrainians as they don't need permit to work for up to 6 months per year in Poland, and later use it to enter Poland and cross Schengen border illegally in order to work illegally in the west, but not in UK.
Britain, dont flatter yourself too much. Ukrainians prefer much warmer and friendlier countries, they are much more likely to go to Germany, Italy and most likely to actually stay in Poland. I dont know if britain realises how many british people are leaving UK for better life.
