MOSCOW, May 06. /ITAR-TASS/. About 2,500 Ukrainian citizens have turned to the Civic Chamber of Russia for help, the forum's deputy secretary, Vladislav Grib, said on Tuesday.
The situation in the country looks like “a humanitarian disaster”, Grib said, adding that the chamber's coordinating centre for civic assistance was examining appeals from Ukrainian regions. These were mainly requests for asylum in Russia, he said.
“People are leaving their homes and moving away from Ukraine. There are tens of thousands of such people, while only some of them have turned to us. We help them to receive asylum,” he said, noting that Ukrainian refugees were granted temporary asylum since Russia had a visa-free regime with Ukraine.
