EU 'forgot' about Ukrainian refugees: Serbian Interior Minister
After 2 months and a half since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, the Serbian Interior Minister warns of the fate of Ukrainian refugees in Serbia.
Serbian Interior Minister Aleksandar Vulin said, on Friday, that Europe appears to have forgotten about the issue of Ukrainian refugees as a result of the ongoing conflict, failing to develop a unified policy on the subject.
"So, in the case of Ukraine, the refugee crisis did not disappear. What I asked for is a united stance, to tell us if the refugees will be accepted in Europe or not?" Vulin told reporters.
The Minister went on to say that the EU lacks a unified policy on migration, and he expressed concern about the fate of Ukrainian refugees in Serbia, North Macedonia, and Greece.

"Europe is repeating the mistake is made from the outset of the refugee crisis. It does not have a single policy and leaves each country alone to deal with the refugee crisis," Vulin added.
Since February 24, over four million people have left Ukraine through checkpoints controlled by Kiev, according to the Ukrainian border guard.
