Up to 20,000 Ukrainians will be offered shelter in temporary shipping-container towns, established by the Polish government, the Polish ambassador to Kyiv has told PAP.

Bartosz Cichocki said on Friday that the towns are a way of supporting people who have lost their homes in the war.

"The shipping container town in Borodyanka is a second such facility, after one built in Lviv, which was opened by (Polish) Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki," Cichocki said. "The construction of a town in Bucha is also being completed."

According to Cichocki: "Ukraine would like the programme to be extended to the Chernihiv region, where a large number of council houses have been destroyed and many people have lost their homes.

"Ultimately, the programme is to provide temporary shelter to 20,000 people from various regions of Ukraine, not only the Kyiv region," he said. 

Mysterious inscriptions from the 2nd and 3rd centuries had left archaeologists baffled since their discovery a century ago. Now Dr. Aleksandra Kubiak-Schneider from the University of Warsaw says she has cracked it.

Measuring between 1.3 to 1.5 metres long and 50cm in depth, the cylindrical metal canister was found in the conservatory of an 18th century palace used by Hitler’s SS as a brothel.
