VYTEGRA (Vologda Region), July 05. /ITAR-TASS/. More than 30 Russian regions currently receive refugees from Ukraine’s embattled Southeast, Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov said Saturday.
“Over 30 regions of our country have responded to the call by the Russian EMERCOM’s board and military council and organized specific targeted assistance to people who are forced to leave the territory of Ukraine,” Puchkov said at the ceremony to close the third all-Russian forum “Society for Security.”
The minister said that rescuers jointly with representatives of regional authorities have deployed temporary accommodation centers.
“Each person receives not only food, medical and information assistance but also part of the soul, warmth and support of each citizen of our great country,” Puchkov said.
Ukrainians continue fleeing the Donetsk and Lugansk regions in eastern Ukraine where the Ukrainian military, units of the “national guard” and the Right Sector ultranationalist movement have been conducting a punitive operation against residents who are demanding federalization and greater rights for Russian language speakers.
Russian Regional Development Minister Igor Slyunyayev said June 30 that the number of Ukrainian refugees arriving in Russia from the Southeast of Ukraine may reach 300,000 by the end of this year.
President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with Russian ambassadors and permanent representatives July 1 that Russia will provide assistance to refugees from Ukraine.
