This data is provided by Pavel Latushka, citing the administration of the Podlaskie Voivodeship of Poland.During the work visit to the region, Pavel Latushka and the administration of the Podlaskie Voivodeship agreed on assistance in the creation of a Center for Belarusian Culture in Bialystok and the need to create conditions for teaching the Belarusian language at schools of Bialystok.
It’s reported that they also discussed the possibility of naming one of the streets in Bialystok as “Free Belarus street.”
We remind that in late June, the Office for Foreigners in Poland reported that Belarusians constitute the second largest group of foreigners in Poland. The number of Belarusians who were issued residence permits in this country exceeded 50,000 people.
It should be noted that there are no exact statistics on how many Belarusians have left the country. First, not everyone who receives visas stays abroad. And second, over the last two years, a large number of Belarusians have left for temporary residence or transit to the countries outside the Schengen zone: Ukraine, Georgia, Israel, Turkey, Montenegro, Armenia, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan.
