Three Polish planes on route to Afghanistan to evacuate 100 people

 In an interview with Polsat News the head of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister, Michał Dworczyk, said that "two Polish military planes are on the way, the third one will take off soon." There are about 100 people on the evacuation list.

The situation in Afghanistan is unstable, said Dworczyk. "The mere organization of the technical side of loading these people onto the planes that will appear in Kabul is a big challenge for everyone. It is about verifying the people who will appear at the airport" - he said.

When asked how many people were to be taken by Polish planes, he replied: "At the moment, there are about 100 people on the evacuation list who collaborated with the Polish Military Contingent or with our facility. However, this situation is dynamic."

"As Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced, we will do everything to ensure that everyone who cooperated with Polish soldiers and diplomats, and who needs help today, receives such help," said the minister.
