Frédéric Petit, our Deputy Secretary General mobilised on the borders of Ukraine

Frederic Petit à la frontière ukrainienne

Our deputy secretary general Frédéric Petit, MP for French people living in Central Europe and the Balkans, went to the borders of Ukraine in Poland to examine the consequences of the war and to support the people mobilised on the ground. Interview in the programme Circo on LCP.

Frédéric Petit is an MP for the French abroad living in Central Europe and the Balkans. With the war in Ukraine, he decided to return to his home town, Krakow, on the borders of Europe, in Poland, where hundreds of refugees arrive every day. On the spot, he meets the French people involved, whether they are doctors, embassy staff or humanitarian volunteers. He tries to help them better coordinate their actions on the ground.
