The UK is committed to the principle of non-discrimination on any grounds, including on the basis of race. The UK has deployed humanitarian experts to Poland to provide logistics, advice and analysis of the refugee situation. It is important that all those seeking to leave Ukraine are able to do so and the Foreign Secretary regularly speaks with the Polish Foreign Minister Rau where these issues are raised.
