YAROSLAVL, July 15. /ITAR-TASS/. An aircraft of the Russian Emergencies Ministry (EMERCOM), carrying a new organized group of Ukrainian refugees, mostly children, landed at Tunoshna airport in the central Russian city of Yaroslavl on Tuesday.
“Another 121 Ukrainians, according to the list of refugees, have been airlifted to the Yaroslavl Region,” the spokesman for the EMERCOM regional branch, Mikhail Zverev, told IITAR-TASS. “The list includes 51 children, with 16 out of them under two years old and the youngest just one month old.”
“They are well after the flight,” he said, adding that it was the third EMERCOM special flight delivering refugees to the Yaroslavl Region over the past three weeks.
Five buses will take the refugees to dormitories of educational establishments in the regional cities of Uglich and Pereslavl-Zalessky, the places of their temporary accommodation.
Over 800 Ukrainians, the third of the them children, are staying in the region, according to the Yaroslavl regional government.
In June and July, special EMERCOM flights airlifted 352 people who were later accommodated in two holiday centers, as well as in the cities of Rostov and Uglich and the village of Semibratovo.
The regional budget allocated 54 million rubles ($1.57 million) from the reserve fund for their settlement.
