Russian MoD: Total of 1.1 million refugees arrived to Russia
Russia's Defense Ministry says more than 1.1 million civilians have been transported from Ukraine and the Donbass Republics to Russia.
The head of the Russian National Defense Control Center, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, said on Tuesday that more than 1.1 million civilians have been transported into Russia amid the war in Ukraine.
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, a total of 1,103,701 people, including 197,927 children were transported from Ukraine and the breakaway DPR and LPR into Russia.
"Despite all difficulties and obstacles created by Kiev, over the past day, 11,564 people, including 1,571 children, were evacuated from unsafe areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics to the Russian territory without the participation of the Ukrainian authorities," Mizintsev said.
Moreover, more than 9,500 well-equipped temporary accommodation centers are currently operating in Russia, with refugees being provided with recreational facilities, essential items, and hot meals. They are also being assisted in addressing issues related to social benefits, employment, and children's education.
