MOSCOW, June 25, /ITAR-TASS/. Over 23,000 Ukrainian refugees have fled to Russia, Deputy Prime Minister Olga Golodets said on Wednesday, June 25.
“We have set up 262 camps for temporary accommodation of refugees from Ukraine and 23,286 people are staying in them,” she said. “This number is constantly changing because regions … are making job offers and some refugees are changing their status to Russian citizenship and moving to Russian regions for permanent residence,” the minister said.
Meanwhile, the number of wounded Ukrainians staying in hospitals in the southern Rostov Region has increased to 20, Tatyana Bykovskaya, regional health minister, told ITAR-TASS.
She said the number of wounded persons coming from Ukraine had decreased after the ceasefire in the south-east of the neighbouring country. One of the patients has stated his wish to stay in Russia and apply for Russian citizenship.
