MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Almost 27,000 Ukrainian refugees, including some 8,800 children, remain at temporary accommodation facilities in various Russian regions, the Russian Emergencies Ministry said on Tuesday.
"Today, a total of 525 temporary accommodation facilities continue operating, which house 26,989 internally displaced persons, including 8,758 children," a ministry spokesman said.
The Ukrainian refugees, whose number has been practically unchanged compared with the previous week, are being provided with food and medical care, as well as information services.
The effort to provide aid to the refugees is carried out jointly by the Emergencies Ministry, the Federal Migration Service and other Russian federal agencies and regions.
About 2.5 million Ukrainian nationals, including 1.193 million men of conscription age, are currently staying in Russia, according to the FMS. More than 850,000 people have arrived from Ukraine’s south-eastern regions.
Most Ukrainians arriving in Russia stay with their relatives or friends. About 440,000 people who were forced to leave south-eastern Ukraine have applied for a refugee status, temporary shelter or temporary residence permit, the FMS press service said.
