MURMANSK, June 27,/ITAR-TASS/. The number of children refugees who have arrived in Russia from southeast Ukraine has reached 14,000, Russian Children's Ombudsman Pavel Astakhov told journalists during his visit to the Russian northern port of Murmansk on Friday.
He said that Russia had about 40,000 refugees with an official a refugee status but thousands continued crossing into Russia every day.
Astakhov noted that many refugees were staying at their relatives in the private sector and were not rushing to get an official refugee status.
However, all people arriving from Ukraine, irrespective of when they get an official refugee status, will need employment and places in schools and kindergartens for their children, Astakhov explained.
He added that those problems were being successfully resolved in regions that had set up 15 centers for helping the children of refugees.
