EU to Awards Affected Ukrainians three years right to stay
Meanwhile, while the conflict in Ukraine continues, authorities from the European Union and France have said that the EU intends to allow fleeing Ukrainians the right to remain and work in any of its member states for a period of up to three years if they do not return home.
They mentioned this while thanking volunteers for their assistance in assisting people who had arrived at the border.
According to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, they indicated that at least 300,000 Ukrainian migrants have entered the EU so far, and that the union must prepare for millions more.
Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Hungary, all of which are members of the European Union, share a border with Ukraine on land.
France’s interior minister, Gerald Darmanin, told France 2 television on Monday that the European Union’s interior minister had tasked the European Commission with preparing draft proposals to grant them protection on Sunday, “It is our responsibility to take in those who flee war,” Darmanin said.
The EU will also assist member nations bordering Ukraine in dealing with the flow of newcomers, according to the European Commission. A visit at a border crossing between Romania and Ukraine on Monday by EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson was accompanied by the following statement:
She went on to say that local volunteers and officials assisting individuals crossing the border were “demonstrating solidarity in action, demonstrating that we are founded on values different than Putin’s, and that we are living up to these ideals.”
On Sunday, Johansson said that the migration of Ukrainians was a problem for the whole European Union.
According to projections from the United Nations, Janez Lenarcic, European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, has said that four million Ukrainians are anticipated to depart the nation as refugees, with many more displaced inside Ukraine, according to NAN.
Because males between the ages of 18 and 60 are barred from leaving Ukraine, the majority of those arriving at the border crossings in eastern Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary, as well as northern and north-eastern Romania, are women and children.
During a press conference on Sunday, German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said that “all EU member states are willing to take migrants from Ukraine.”
Europe has responded forcefully to the horrible suffering that Putin has inflicted on the Ukrainian people as part of his illegal campaign of aggression: “We stand together in solidarity with the people of Ukraine.”
