A Second Flight of 117 Ukrainian Refugees From Moldova Landed in Germany


Another 117 Ukrainian refugees have arrived in Erfurt from Moldova on a second flight following the successful start of air transport initiated by the German federal government.

In a statement issued on April 1, the German government announced that these refugees were welcomed at the Erfurt-Weimar airport by the Minister of Migration of Thuringia, Dirk Adams.

The Federal Minister of the Interior, Nancy Faeser, thanked the state of Thuringia for its readiness to accept Ukrainian refugees, noting that the incoming refugees have suffered at the hands of Russian aggression, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

“Above all, the refugee children, women, old people, and people with disabilities urgently need our help. Now it is particularly important to arrive safely, to have good medical care, and to look after the children in Germany. Bund, federal states, and municipalities are tackling this major humanitarian task together in very close cooperation,” she pointed out in this regard.

In this regard, the Minister of Migration of the State of Thuringia, Dirk Adams, said that Thuringia is ready to accept war refugees from Ukraine and that everything has been prepared for this for weeks.

“Therefore, there was no question for me that Thuringia would allow refugees from the Ukraine who are in safety in the Republic of Moldova brought, as part of the humanitarian airlift initiated by the federal government. We rely on numerous volunteer helpers and the municipalities, who acted quickly and prudently when war broke out to house refugees. The most important task now is to get the people out to enable Ukraine to stay safely in Thuringia,” he also noted.

The German federal government is also working closely with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Chisinauto to help as many refugees as possible to escape their current situation.

Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock announced that she had invited France and Romania to an international conference in support of Moldova in Berlin next Tuesday, adding that support for Moldova was crucial.

In addition, Moldova has so far accepted nearly 400,000 refugees from Ukraine.

On March 25, the first plane brought 134 Ukrainian refugees from Moldova to Germany who successfully landed in Frankfurt.

According to the government, the refugees who need help are mainly people with disabilities, the elderly, people with serious illnesses, and mothers who travel only with their children but also with the injured. After registering, they all receive accommodation, assistance, and medical care in Germany if required.
