According to the First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, a database of the locations where people from “critical” regions can move to has been created.
Over 30,000 shelters have been prepared for the refugees from the “critical” regions of Ukraine, as reported by the First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Vitaliy Yarema before the government meeting.
According to Mr. Yarema, within the last week only around 15,000 refugees fled from Donetsk Oblast.
A session was held together with the Oblasts’ administrations in which the issue of great numbers of refugees from Luhansk and Donetsk Oblasts were discussed. Almost 15,000 people fled from Donetsk Oblast alone within the last week, stated Mr. Yarema.
According to him, a database has been created listing all locations where people from critical regions can move to. “As of today there are 30,000 of such shelters. They are located all over Ukraine, mostly in Cherkasy Oblast”, specified Mr. Yarema.
