SIMFEROPOL, June 29, /ITAR-TASS/. About 300 refugees from Ukraine’s south-eastern regions come to Crimea every day, Crimea’s Fist Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Sheremet told reporters on Sunday.
“I would not say the inflow has grown or decreased,” he said. “A daily average is 200-300 people. Those are people who get registered. Many refugees have not applied to the migration service yet.”
The official added about 7,000 refugees from Ukraine had been registered in Crimea, where they are offered temporary accommodation in 40 locations, including the cities of Alushta, Yevpatoria and Kerch and the Saki region.
Within several past days, about 800 refugees took EMERCOM’s planes to travel from Crimea to Russia’s other cities.
“People file applications, where they say they would like to go to other regions, we pass the data to EMERCOM (Emergencies Ministry), and they provide planes for them,” the first deputy prime minister said.
On June 28, EMERCOM transported 250 people from Simferopol to Mineralnye Vody (North Caucasus). Medical staff, including psychologists, accompanies the refugees.
