U.S. President Joe Biden met with Ukrainian refugees at a humanitarian center in Warsaw on Saturday, alongside Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

READ MORE: U.S. President Joe Biden met in Warsaw Saturday with Polish President Andrzej Duda and other Polish officials to discuss Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as Russia appears to have shifted its military offensive away from Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv and toward the country’s east.

“Your freedom is ours,” Biden told his Polish counterpart.

Duda, whose country borders Ukraine, said “Polish-American relations are flourishing” and Russia’s war against Ukraine underscored the importance of a unified NATO.

“Poles have a great feeling of danger because we know what Russian imperialism and an attack by the Russian army means. Because our grandparents and great-grandparents, sometimes our parents, survived it,” Duda said.

Poland, a NATO member, has accepted more than 2 million of the 3.8 million Ukrainian refugees who have fled their country, sparking a humanitarian crisis, which Biden also discussed with Polish officials.

Biden was accompanied by Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski and Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki during a visit with refugees Saturday in a Warsaw stadium to discuss humanitarian relief efforts. Biden previously committed to accommodate 100,000 refugees in the U.S.
