He also specified that there is a great problem in the process of the migration.

"People are sent from Ukraine to Poland in the so-called working travel. But as soon as they get the permission for work there, here they are dismissed and nobody is insured there. However, as they do not pay the insurance contributions, the insurance period is not accrued. If they return to Ukraine, they will have no right for pension both in Ukraine and Poland," the minister said.
