SIMFEROPOL, July 27, 1:41 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian regions have transferred more than 27 million roubles (768, 582 U.S. dollars) to a special account opened by a Crimean Fund, which supports refugees from southeast Ukraine who have found shelter in Crimea, the Fund’s executive director, Yekaterina Kazachenko, told a news conference held at the CrimeaInform news agency on July 25.
She said that all regions and territories of Russia were offering help. “Huge help is coming from Ingushetia,” Kazachenko stressed.
Irina Klyuyeva, the head of the Crimean State Council (parliament) Committee for Refugees, said that the deputies had asked Crimean entrepreneurs for help.
“The State Council has asked the commission for entrepreneurship to ask (the local) businessmen to render material or financial assistance or simply help with goods, which they produce,” Klyuyeva said.
According to Crimean Vice-Premier Ingmar Levchik, more than 4,000 out of 7,000 refugees staying in the peninsula are displaced persons registered by the Russian Federal Migration Service.
“People are looking for a new life in a stable state. About 250-300 people arrive in Crimea every day,” Levchik said.
