“Currently only about 2,000 refugees from Ukraine arrive in Germany every day,” Faeser told the Rheinische Post. In mid-March there were still 15,000 people a day.
20,000 refugees are now returning to their country every day across the Polish-Ukrainian border, including people from Germany. She assumes that the majority of people will return, said Faeser. Some will stay.
However, it remains a major humanitarian effort to provide the women, children and elderly who have fled with the best possible care, added the SPD politician. The willingness of the German population to help is still great. “The refugees are very well received here – nothing is tipping at the moment.”
The Federal Office for Migration in Switzerland announced on Friday that around 49,000 refugees from Ukraine had been registered so far. That was 345 more than the day before.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, a total of 6 million Ukrainians have fled their home country since the war began on February 24. In the Ukraine itself, 8 million people were fleeing. (SDA)
