About 150,000 Ukrainian Refugees Have Arrived in Germany So Far


Nearly 147,000 people fleeing the war in Ukraine have registered in Germany so far since Russia’s military invasion that started on February 24.

The German Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser has announced that more than 2,300 Technical Relief Agency (THW) volunteers have already settled in Germany to support children, women, and men who have fled the war in Ukraine to settle in the country.

In a press release statement issued on March 13 by the Federal Ministry of the Interior and Community (BMI), Foreign Minister Faeser thanked all municipal assistants, federal states, and many other organisations for their commitment and solidarity with Ukraine, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

In this regard, Minister Faeser said that Ukrainian refugees should receive assistance as soon as possible and comprehensively, adding that there is a great effort by both the federal government, the state and local government to help in this regard.

“It is now a matter of providing the best possible care, accommodation, and distribution for the people who have fled. The federal government is giving the states and local authorities massive support in this – with the federal police, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, and many others Helpers of the Technical Relief Agency,” she also noted.

According to BMI, 148 volunteers are stationed in Berlin to operate the power supply, expand emergency shelters, and transport state-owned camps and medical facilities.

On March 11, a relief transport arrived by THW with sleeping beds and winter bags in Moldova.

In addition, in Poland, Romania, and Moldova, THW volunteers are in place with reconnaissance teams to secure supplies.

“Since March 3, THW has brought seven aid transports for Ukraine to the Polish-Ukrainian border, with medical material, generators, hygiene kits, first aid material, and other relief supplies,” the statement reads.

The Federal Ministry of the Interior and Community has also announced that by March 14, the number of Ukrainian refugees had reached almost 147,000.

In addition, Germany started an initiative to relocate the 2,500 Ukrainians currently living in Moldova.

The Moldovan Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced this on March 12 after the meeting of the Minister with his German counterpart Annalena Bareback.

On the other hand, all Ukrainian citizens travelling to Germany will not be required to pay for tickets, as the Polish state-owned company PKP has announced that it is offering free tickets to all refugees heading to Germany.

According to the company, Ukrainian refugees are allowed to travel for free with the second class on the nine daily trains that connect the Polish cities of Warsaw, Przemyśl, and Gdynia with the German capital Berlin as well as Frankfurt.

Moreover, European countries that have opened their doors to a large number of refugees already fleeing the war in Ukraine are also: Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Moldova, and Romania.
