Two Ukrainian planes in Poland delivered 186 Ukrainian workers
On Saturday, two planes from the Ukrainian airline UIA arrived at Warsaw Chopin Airport, which brought 186 migrant workers from Ukraine to Poland.
After spending two weeks observing at a leisure center near the town of Lovic in Lodz Voivodeship in central Poland, they will be delivered to workplaces across Poland, reports a correspondent from ‘Ukrinform.
“We brought in 186 more of our Ukrainian workers who already had long-term employment contracts,” said Evgeny Kirichenko, owner of Gremi Personal, an international employment company.
He noted that transporting Ukrainians by two planes was a necessary step, because on May 29, the Polish Council of Ministers ordered that on all air vehicles, including charter flights, it was now possible to carry as many passengers as possible, which takes no more than half the maximum number of seats on board. In this context, Kirichenko noted that despite the losses linked to the organization of two charters, the company nevertheless used them to fulfill its obligations towards Ukrainian workers and Polish companies.
According to the owner of the company, for the employees of Gremi Personal, the flight is free, the company also took care of the employees staying for a two-week observation.
All arriving Ukrainian workers have full medical insurance, including COVID-19 sickness.
Earlier on May 24, Gremi Personal took 178 migrant workers from Ukraine from Ukraine to Poland on a UIA charter flight. Gremi Personal CEO Tomasz Bogdevich said no coronavirus was detected in any Ukrainian in this group.
As indicated, since March 15, crossing the Ukrainian-Polish border has been difficult due to the closure of the borders linked to the coronavirus.
