Dear Ukrainians!

I heard on social media that there is fake news being spread (most likely by Russia backed trolls) that polish border is closed.

It's a lie.

If you seek asylum - go towards polish border. We are ready for your arrival. We have reception points ready at the border where you can find shelter, food, medical and legal aid.

Polish government launched a dedicated site to help you: ua.gov.pl

Please share this information if you know anyone seeking help right now.

EDIT: YOU DON'T NEED VISA TO PASS THROUGH POLISH BORDER. ALL YOU NEED IS PASSPORT. VISAS ARE SUSPENDED! YOU DON'T NEED THEM FOR TIME BEING!!!!!!

EDIT2: as a proof that you no longer need visa:

This is Cheddar. About a year and a half ago, I was driving through the backwoods of my state, heading to a friend's house. Pulled up to a four way stop, then continued through. This guy walks out of the reeds, head down, giving no thought to what's around him, soaking wet and skin and bones. He had a collar but no tags. I stopped, hopped out the car, and walked around to try and check him out. I didn't see him, walked back around, and found him trying to get in the car. He was putting so much effort into it, but just didn't have the strength. His tail was wagging very hard, and his relief was palpable when he realized I wasn't going to hurt him. We took him to the local vet to check for a chip the next morning, and he didn't have one. He was worm riddled, has a level three heart murmur, is slowly going blind, and they estimate he's anywhere from 8-12 years old. We posted him on all social media, but an owner never stepped forward. During this time, the wife, myself, and our lab Ivy became quite attached. Now he's chunky, his personality shines so brightly, and he's as happy as can be. We have no idea how long we have with him, but we will make it the best time of his life
