The inflow of refugees to Russia will grow, if martial law is introduced in Donetsk and Luhansk regions in the southeast of the country. These Kiev plans will give a free hand to Ukrainian law enforcement agencies, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters on Wednesday.
Around 4,000 people have already asked for a refugee status, Russian Federal Migration Service said. As many as 3,630 refugees, most of them in southern Russia’s Rostov-on-Don Region are accommodated in southern regions. About 1,400 refugees have already been received in central Russia and 1,460 people in the Russian Republic of Crimea.
Other neighbouring Russian constituent entities, particularly southern Russia’s Stavropol Territory, are prepared to help refugees. For instance, Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Khloponin instructed acting Stavropol territorial Governor Vladimir Vladimirov to provide 2,000-3,000 jobs for Ukrainians.
President Vladimir Putin pledged on June 3 to give several instructions for aid to refugees from south-eastern Ukrainian regions.
