IRKUTSK, August 24 /ITAR-TASS/. Over 600 Ukrainians escaping the military actions in the country’s south-eastern regions arrived in Siberia’s Irkutsk, representative of the local government Valentina Voblikova said on Sunday.
The group of 606 people includes 175 children, where 20 are under twelve months, 37 - between twelve months and three years, and 88 - are of school age, she said.
The refugees will be accommodated at four temporary facilities. Officials of Russia’s migration service will register the refugees.
“Those seeking jobs will consider the vacancies we have in the region,” the representative said.
Another group of 33 refugees from Ukraine will arrive in Irkutsk on Sunday afternoon, and later in August two trains will bring to the region 930 citizens of Ukraine.
