First Ukrainian Refugees Have Arrived From Moldova to Germany


The first aeroplane bringing 134 Ukrainian refugees from Moldova to Germany landed successfully in Frankfurt last Friday, March 25.

In a statement issued on the same day by the German Interior Ministry, it was announced that the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Federal Ministry of Interior and Homeland had opened air transport to Germany in a joint effort. The move followed the German initiative announced by the Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser to accept 2,500 refugees from Ukraine to Germany, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

In this regard, Federal Minister of the Interior Nancy Faeser thanked the state of Rhineland-Palatinate for their readiness to accept the refugees, adding that for a very short time, Germany has started air transport from Moldova, and this shows Germany’s readiness to organise the distribution of refugees in Europe by air.

According to Minister Faeser, Germany will be a hub for fair distribution of refugees in Europe and is working hard on further flight links.

“In view of the terrible suffering of the refugees, we also want to ensure shorter travel distances, rapid medical treatment, and good accommodation. Above all, the children, women, old people, and people with disabilities who have fled urgently need our help. I am very grateful to the state of Rhineland-Palatinate for taking in the refugees from Moldova, whom we welcome together today. Rhineland-Palatinate shows a great willingness to help and solidarity,” she also noted.

Commenting on the issue, Rhineland-Palatinate Minister of State Integration Katharina Binz stressed that the solidarity of the state government and the people of Rhineland-Palatinate lies with the Ukrainian refugees.

“This also shows the great willingness to help throughout the country. The Republic of Moldova has had an enormous number of refugees in recent weeks war refugees, and is doing great things. Therefore, it was a matter of course for me to comply with Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock’s request and support the airlift,” she added.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on March 25 that, since the Russian invasion, Germany has recorded around 250,000 Ukrainian refugees.

Germany is also participating in the EU Solidarity Platform in order to help and accept people from Ukraine who have fled to the Republic of Moldova.

The Federal Government is cooperating with the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR), the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), and airlines to make fast transfers from Moldova.

Previously, on March 25 SchengenVisaInfo.com reported that the first flights of Ukrainian refugees from Moldova to European Union member states took place.

UNHCR announced that it is identifying vulnerable persons in Moldova and at the same time is working with IOM, the European Commission and other EU member states in order to ensure the best possible transfer of refugees.
