The Polish Radio gives an interesting overview of the situation of Ukrainian minors left alone by their parents migrating to Western countries. ‘Polskie Radio’ gives the floor to the NGO ‘La Strada – Ukraine’ and several other actors, describing the consequences of these migration flows on children left behind, especially the risks of being involved in minor crimes or victim of violence. A situation comparable with the impact of mass migration out of Romania, where thousands of children suffer from the same phenomenon.
