MOSCOW, July 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Over 7,000 Ukrainian refugees are staying at temporary accommodation centers in central Russia, an official of the Emergencies Ministry’s central regional branch said on Tuesday.
“By now, 156 temporary accommodation centers have been set up, which are currently providing shelter to over 7,000 forced re-settlers,” Rishat Nurtdinov, first deputy head of the central regional branch, said.
A plane of Russia’s Emergencies Ministry is expected to deliver 120 Ukrainian citizens from Rostov-on-Don, a Russian city on the border with Ukraine, to Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on Tuesday, he said. “They (refugees) will be transported by buses and accommodated on the territory of the Central District,” the official said.
All the necessary specialists, including psychologists from the Emergencies Ministry, are working at temporary accommodation centers to help Ukrainians organize normal living conditions, the official said.
Medical aid for Ukrainian refugees
About 100 million rubles are required to provide medical assistance to Ukrainian refugees, Russia’s Healthcare Minister Veronika Skvortsova said on Tuesday.
“At present, 35,543 citizens needmedical assistance. Among them are 13,500 children,” Skvortsova said at a government session. “As of today, 112 million rubles have been spent on medical assistance,” she said.
The minister said additional funding would be indispensable. The epidemiologic situation at temporary accommodation centres does not arouse concern. “The incidence rate does not surpass the normal level,” Skvortsova said.
