On August 27, a C-130E Hercules transport plane of the Polish air force with tactical number 1501 landed at the airport in Warsaw, with soldiers of the Polish Military Contingent Afghanistan, who ensured the evacuation of Polish, Afghan and allied citizens from Kabul. About 100 soldiers were deployed there on August 18, pursuant to the decision of the President of the Republic of Poland.

The soldiers of the GROM Military Unit, pilots and technicians of the Air Force, medics and logisticians were welcomed by the Minister of National Defense and the Chief of the General Staff of the Polish Army.


About 1,300 people were safely evacuated from Afghanistan to Poland, of which almost 1,000 went to Warsaw. The remaining people are collaborators of allied states or employees of international institutions who have asked Poland for help. The evacuation mission lasted over a week. Four transport planes (C-130E Hercules and C295M) made 30 flights on the route from Navoiya in Uzbekistan to Kabul and back. The evacuees from Uzbekistan were taken to Poland by civilian planes.
Evacuated, among others associates of Lithuania, Latvia and the Netherlands, as well as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).


The Polish Army had already taken care of the safety of its associates in Afghanistan. Practically by the end of June, with the end of the mission in Afghanistan, all Afghan collaborators (along with their families) who were then interested in leaving, were evacuated. After the exacerbation of the situation in Afghanistan, more people who were concerned about their safety came forward.
