MOSCOW, July 10. /ITAR-TASS/. A state of emergency was declared in six Russian regions due to major inflow of refugees from Ukraine. Russian Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Artamonov said this on Thursday.

About 500 people from southeastern Ukraine want to move to the Far East, Russian Deputy Emergencies Minister Vladimir Artamonov added.

The Volgograd, Rostov, Astrakhan regions, the Stavropol Territory, Kalmykia, Crimea and the city of Sevastopol declared a state of emergency, he said, adding the regime of high readiness was in the Belgorod and Voronezh regions.

According to the Federal Migration Service, about 480,000 Ukrainians are in Russia. This year, 2,5 million Ukrainian citizens have arrived in Russia, two million have returned back, and about 480,000 have remained in Russia.

Spokesperson for Russian Emergencies Ministry Alexander Drobyshevsky said the number of Ukrainian refugees accommodated in temporary centers in Russian regions exceeded 20,000.

To date, 20,392 people, including 8,322 children, are in 310 temporary accommodation centers in Russian regions, and eight mobile stations are ready to receive 3,600 people.

People in the centers are provided with basic necessities and medical and psychological care.

Phone hotlines are operating to provide comprehensive help for displaced people. The service received more than 2,600 calls, Drobyshevsky said.

Refugees arrive mostly in Crimea and the Rostov region, from where convoys and EMERCOM (Emergencies Ministry) aircraft carry them to other Russian regions. "Six 'air bridges' are organized to carry refugees to other Russian regions from the Rostov region and the Republic of Crimea. The Russian Emergencies Ministry's aircraft have carried more than 4,500 people, and almost 4,000 people were carried by convoys," the spokesman said.

Planes and road transport deliver relief aid cargoes for Ukrainian refugees. Over 800 tonnes have been already delivered, and more than 120 tonnes were on the way to the Rostov and Volgograd regions.
