“Buses will take them to temporary refugee centers in the Ryazan region,” Alexander Drobyshevsky, an official spokesperson for the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, told ITAR-TASS.
He said that another Emergencies Ministry plane would fly from Rostov-on-Don, southern Russia, to Simferopol to pick up more than a hundred Ukrainian nationals. They will be delivered to the town of Ivanovo, located 245 kilometers away from Moscow.
Drobyshevsky told journalists that automobile columns would take another 200 Ukrainian refugees from Russia’s Rostov region to Volgograd, a city on the banks of the Volga River.
He visited a field refugee tent camp near the Russian border town of Donetsk. The minister said that the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations had another 400 stationary temporary accommodation centers — such as hotels and rest homes — in reserve where Ukrainian refugees could be quartered. Besides, the Emergencies Ministry has an opportunity to set up additional field refugee camps if necessary.
“We are gradually accommodating people at stationary places of sojourn. Today, planes will carry refugees to Bashkortostan, the Vladimir region and other parts of Russia,” Puchkov stressed.
