More than two months ago, Hungary saw an unprecedented wave of migrants attempting to cross its green borders with their numbers totalling around 10,000 per day.

Colonel Artur Bazydlo, the Polish unit’s commander, said at the ceremony that the experiences they had gained during their two-month mission with Hungarian and Slovak colleagues would be a great asset for them on later missions in Poland.
