The Far Eastern Primorsky Territory and the Baikal region received hundreds of people from war-torn southeastern Ukraine on Friday.
More than 400 people arrived in the Primorsky Territory. It was the second group sent to the region according to the quota set by the Russian government. The first 600 Ukrainians arrived by a train in the region on Thursday and have been already accommodated in seven districts of Primorye.
The second group arrived by plane from Simferopol, the regional administration press service said. The people had fled Ukraine to Crimea. Among them are many children and old and disabled people.
Vice-Governor Alexander Los said the people would receive documents in three days and many could be employed in a few days. The region needs doctors, other medical personnel, teachers and agricultural workers.
The region plans to receive 2,800 people.
More than 900 Ukrainians, including 297 children, arrived in the Irkutsk region overnight, regional Minister for Social Development Vladimir Rodionov said. With the group, the southeastern Siberian region near Baikal Lake have already received 1,542 refugees. Other two special trains are expected to arrive in the region on August 31 and September 2.
Russian permanent representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin told a U.N. Security Council meeting on August 28 that resettlers from Ukraine, including refugees, numbered more than 814,000 in Russia.
More than 12,000 Ukrainian citizens who fled their country because of the armed conflict have been employed in Russia, Russian Vice-Premier Olga Golodets said on Thursday.
Before the autumn comes, the Russian Emergencies Ministry begins to remove mobile temporary accommodation camps as Ukrainian refugees leave for other regions. Most of the camps were set up near the Russian-Ukrainian border between the Donetsk and Rostov regions. The centres were the first to receive most of refugees and provide psychological and medical care for them. Refugees from the camps move to other Russian regions from Kaliningrad in the west to Khabarovsk and Kamchatka in the Far East.
