“A total of 769 temporary accommodation facilities, housing over 35,000 internally displaced Ukrainians, remain operating in the Russian regions. There are over 11,200 children among them,” Drobyshevsky said.
The refugees have been provided with food and medical care. Over the past week, 20 temporary accommodation facilities across the country were closed as almost 1,500 refugees had left them.
