MOSCOW, March 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Public Chamber’s coordination committee on the provision of assistance to Ukrainian nationals received a letter from Novgorod Region saying that the central Russian region was ready to provide 3,500 workplaces for Ukrainian refugees, a member of the chamber said on Thursday.
Earlier in the month, Russian regions began preparing to receive Ukrainian refugees, who wished to leave their country amid the turbulent political crisis.
Maxim Grigoryev, a member of the Public Chamber, said he “was glad to announce that upon an initiative of Governor Sergei Mitin, the Veliky Novgorod Region has already prepared for receiving Ukrainian nationals.”
“If people, who are in an unstable situation, want to obtain the Russian citizenship and work in Russia, they will be able to find a suitable job,” Grigoryev said.
According to him, representatives of the Veliky Novgorod Region not only provided a list of jobs on the offer, but also listed addresses of potential employers. Some of the employers provide housing for their employees.
Grigoryev said he hoped that other Russian regions would follow the lead of the Veliky Novgorod Region.
According to data provided earlier in the month by the Russian border authorities, some 675,000 Ukrainian nationals entered Russia since the beginning of the year.
Head of the Russian Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romodanovsky said on Wednesday that the inflow of Ukrainian senior citizens and children in Russia has recently doubled.
