ORYOL, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Thousands of potential refugees from Ukraine will be provided with accommodation in Russia’s Oryol region, which is located in the south-west of Russia, near the border with Ukraine. Up to 7,600 people will be able to take refuge in the region, if needed, as Russia will open fixed accommodation facilities for them, the regional emergency department told the media on Wednesday.If the refugees’ influx is great, they will be accommodated in hotels in the city of Oryol, the region’s administrative center, and other cities as well. The refugees can also stay in recreation centers and children’s camps, the emergencies department’s chief Natalia Akulova told Itar-Tass. She added that they had already calculated the number of rooms available, so the Orel region was ready to receive the refugees.
The day before, the temporary acting head of Oryol region, Vadim Potomski, said that the local authorities were ready to help the Ukrainian people and give them refuge in the region, if need be.
The regional department of Russia’s Federal Migration Service has estimated that over a thousand Ukrainians arrived in Oryol region over the past two months, which was twice the number of refugees registered during the same period in 2013.
“We are taking measures to define the refugees’ legal status”, added the department’s officials.
