Ukrainian refugees in Poland will have to partially pay for accommodation in collective housing centers
The Cabinet of Ministers of Poland has approved a draft law, according to which Ukrainian refugees living in state collective housing centers for a certain period of time must partially pay for their accommodation.
BBC reported on the draft law.
According to the new Polish draft law, Ukrainians living in "collective housing centers" must compensate part of the cost of their accommodation.
The outlet notes that refugees from Ukraine must pay 50% of the cost of accommodation and food if they live in state centers for more than 120 days. However, the amount of compensation should not exceed PLN 40 per day.
Those staying more than 180 days must pay 75%, but not more than PLN 60 per day.
BBC reports that the draft law includes exceptions for Ukrainians who are unable to earn a living due to age or illness, as well as for pregnant women.
"The government wants the new law to come into effect on March 1. The law must be passed by the Sejm, but it is expected that Sejm members will vote in its favor," writes BBC.
