The Belgian delegation will visit the refugee reception center in Ceroc, near the Polish capital Warsaw, and meet a convoy of six trucks chartered by B-FAST (Belgian Humanitarian Rapid Response Unit) in Rzczów, near the Ukrainian border.

Then, De Croo will visit the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the UNICEF office at the Medica border crossing. Poland is at the forefront of refugee reception.

Since the beginning of the war, some 4.4 million Ukrainians have fled their country, of which 2.5 million have passed through Poland.

Belgium is present in the Baltic region on the military front with four F-16s based in Estonia and carrying out an air policing mission recently extended to Poland.

In the days following the start of the conflict, 300 soldiers were also deployed to Romania under French command in Constanta on the Black Sea as part of the Nato Rapid Reaction Force (VJTF).

The troops will be visited by De Croo, following an earlier visit by Defence Minister Ludivine Dedonder in mid-March.
