MOSCOW, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Symptoms of a swelling humanitarian disaster can be seen more and more plainly in Ukraine and Russia’s Federal Migration Service has sent a petition in this connection to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the director of the service, Konstantin Romodanovsky said Wednesday.
The petition mentions a sharp increase in the numbers of the Ukrainian citizens arriving in Russia for purposes other than work. “Humanitarian disasters have definite symptoms and they’re getting more and more obvious in this case, as the inflow of senior citizens and children has grown twofold.”
“We shared this information with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and our apprehensions are understandable,” Romodanovsky said. “Collaboration with the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees has begun and our joint efforts will help minimize the impact of the situation.
