“I have approved the composition of the working group headed by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak which will promptly address and solve the problems of refugees from Ukraine,” Medvedev said on Monday, June 30.
He stressed the need to set up staff offices in Russian regions for receiving refugees and creating normal conditions for their accommodation.
“These people should be treated properly no matter what future they will choose for themselves: a temporary, short stay or the status of refugee and subsequent application for Russian citizenship,” the prime minister said.
Medvedev said the Ukrainian children who had fled their country would be able to go to Russian schools and kindergartens if they stayed in Russia until September.
He said the government would provide necessary financial assistance to regions for that purpose.There are currently 17,000 Ukrainian refugees staying at temporary accommodation centres in Russia.
“As of today 245 temporary accommodation centres have been deployed. A total of 17,010 people, including 7,239 children, are staying there,” Emergencies Ministry spokesperson Alexander Drobyshevsky told ITAR-TASS, adding that 3,500 people have been put up in seven mobile temporary accommodation centres.
Forced migrants are transported to other Russian regions from the Rostov Region and Crimea.
