GORKI. September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes it necessary to render assistance to Ukrainian refugees for making their daily life comfortable in Russia if they wish to make a durable stay in Russia or to remain here forever.
Speaking at a meeting with the head of the Russian Federal Migration Service, Konstantin Romodanovsky, on Wednesday Medvedev said that “when speaking about providing the refuges with necessary facilities, I mean that an individual having a temporary residential status in the territory of the Russian Federation should be embraced by a broad scope of measures that make his or her life comfortable rather than only be given a place at a temporary accommodation facility or provided with housing regardless whether or not this person will stay or will live here for a long period of time.”
Medvedev said that refugees who file requests for temporary asylum or temporary sojourn are “a group of people we must - so to speak - put down for allowances, as they will stay back here to work and to live, and they should get jobs and their children should go to school.”
“As quite a number of jobs are in demand in Russia, this resource should be utilized,” the prime minister said speaking about the refugees’ employment.
Romodanovsky said that “the regions are satisfied with the specialists arriving from Ukraine as they are definitely popular in our job market.
