MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. Over $156 million were provided for Ukrainian refugees from the Russian budget, head of the Russian Federal Migration Service Konstantin Romodanovsky said on Thursday.
The flow of Ukrainian citizens to Russia has increased by 60% as compared with last year. At present, about 2.6 million Ukrainians are staying in Russia, including at least 830,000 citizens who were forced to leave the country due to the conflict, Romodanovsky said.
A total of 46,000 people are staying at over 900 temporary accommodation centers. At least 412,000 people live with their relatives or friends, he said.
Ukrainian nationals have replaced Central Asian citizens as labor migrants in Russia, Romodanovsky said. “Amid the events in Ukraine, that category of citizens who came from Central Asia were replaced by the citizens of Ukraine,” he noted.
This trend is confirmed by data on the issued labor permits, licenses and temporary residence permits, Romodanovsky said.
The Russian budget received 14.3 billion rubles ($344 million) from the licenses issued to the foreigners to work in Russia.
