Ten British paedophiles were deported from Poland after travelling to the country under the pretence of helping refugees following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine
- British sex offenders went to refugee-laden Poland in the early weeks of war
- Ten convicted paedophiles travelled east in the first six weeks as ‘volunteers’
- As many as 5,000 unaccompanied children displaced in first weeks of conflict
British sex offenders were tracked going to refugee-laden Poland in the early weeks of war, seemingly to take advantage of the chaos unfolding on the border with Ukraine.
The National Crime Agency (NCA) yesterday revealed ten convicted paedophiles travelled east in the first six weeks after Vladimir Putin’s invasion, under the guise of providing assistance to refugees.
All ten were interviewed by Polish authorities and removed from the country, said an NCA spokesman, adding: ‘We have an international network that identifies these threats… we contact our partners and say you have a convicted sex offender on your patch.’
As many as 5,000 unaccompanied children were displaced in the first weeks of the conflict.
Now two thirds of Ukraine’s children have been driven from their homes, according to UNICEF, with 200,000 forced into Russia where some are being put up for adoption.

The NCA spokesman continued: ‘It is no coincidence, I think, that somewhere in the region of ten known British child sex offenders travelled to Poland in the first six weeks after the invasion of Ukraine, allegedly to provide humanitarian assistance.
‘Normally they’re meant to have declared this [their conviction] as part of their entry. We find inevitably, they haven’t.
‘As far as I understand it, all ten were asked to leave, following an interview with Polish immigration and Polish law enforcement. So they’re no longer in Poland.’
