About 500 refugees from Ukraine’s southeastern regions reportedly arrive daily in Crimea, Chairman of Crimean Parliament Vladimir Konstantinov said Wednesday.
“The situation is extremely tense. Around 500 refugees arrive in Crimea daily,” Konstantinov told journalists.
The council chairman stressed that the republic will receive refugees despite the fact that the region is also facing other important issues related to the maintenance of Crimea’s citizens and the transition period of unification with Russia.
Ukrainian State Service for Emergency Situations said in a statement on Wednesday that more than 27,000 residents of Donetsk and Luhansk regions have been settled throughout Ukraine.
"From the beginning of the anti-terrorist operation in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as of the morning July 2 the Interagency Coordination Staff moved and settled in other regions of Ukraine over 27,013 Ukrainian citizens. Among the re-settlers are: children - 10,268, persons with disabilities and elderly - 3, 454 people," the report reads.
The emergency agency officials added that most citizens have been accommodated in Kyiv, Kyiv region, Zaporizhzhia region, Kharkiv region, Odesa and Dnipropetrovsk regions.
Now in each region regional headquarters have been set up to provide assistance to the citizens who move from the areas of the antiterrorist operation.
