MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. More than 265,000 Ukrainian nationals, forced to flee their homes amid continuing violence in the country’s south-east, have been granted temporary shelter and official refugee status in Russia, Federal Migration Service (FMS) said on Monday.
"More than 290,000 people have applied for asylum, which includes temporary shelter and refugee status. About 265,000 have already got it," FMS citizenship department head Valentina Kazakova told journalists, noting that more than 900,000 refugees from Ukraine’s south-eastern regions were currently residing in Russia.
Some people preferred not to request any status documents, making use of a bilateral agreement allowing Ukrainians to stay in Russia without registering with the migration service for up to 90 days, Kazakova added.
