MOSCOW, September 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Over 180,000 Ukrainians have applied for refugee status and temporary shelter in Russia, head of the Russian Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romodanovsky said.
Over 110,000 people have already received such status, he said. “Of course, this is good demographic support for our country. Over 250,000 people are practically ready to integrate into the Russian society,” Romodanovsky said in an interview with Rossiiskaya Gazeta. “The state program for voluntary resettlement assumed paramount importance,” he said.
Over 90,000 people seek a temporary residence permit. “Ukrainians want to leave the conflict area and stay in Russia forever. It makes sense. Ukrainian migrants do not need serious adaptation and integration training because we have a common system of cultural and historical values and symmetric approaches towards education and professional qualification,” Romodanovsky said.
