“Indeed, 11,000 people have arrived in the Moscow region, but we should realize that only 400 of them have applied for the official refugee status, and no more people will get it.” “The rest are settling in the Moscow region, looking for jobs, as they are in demand here. They are actively integrating into Russian life,” the governor said. “The most important thing is that jobs are available in the Moscow region, which allows the refugee families to calmly live and plan their future,” he added.
According to the governor, in terms of the accommodation of refugees the regional authorities actively cooperate with the federal center. “The main refugee flow is now coming already not to the Moscow region, but to other territories,” he said.
