At the same time, the minister noted that the number of Ukrainians arriving in Germany from Poland by train has decreased by more than three times compared to the peak at the beginning of hostilities
Germany will not limit the number of Ukrainian refugees arriving in the country, the Minister of Transport and digital infrastructure of Germany Volker Wissing in an interview with RND.
“Such a question is not worth it. Germany cannot and will not refuse refugees from Ukraine, — he said, answering the relevant question.
According to him, at the peak, about 120 thousand Ukrainians fled to Poland every day, and Warsaw alone received more than 300 thousand refugees. From Poland to Germany by train they get through Hannover, Cottbus and Berlin. Now the number of Ukrainians arriving in Germany by trains has decreased compared to the peak at the beginning of hostilities from about 8.2 thousand to 2.5 thousand people a day, he specified.
According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, as of April 8, since the beginning of the military operation, more than 4.3 million Ukrainians have left the country, another 7.1 million have been forced to leave their homes and move to other regions. Most came to Poland— more than 2.5 million people since the beginning of the Russian military operation.
On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine with the aim of “demilitarizing” and “denazification”. The Ministry of Defense claims that they strike only at military targets.
In mid-March, the Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs announced a request from Germany to suspend the departure of trains with refugees from the country. Later, German and Polish interior ministers Nancy Feser and Mariusz Kaminsky asked the European Commission to review the distribution of refugees by country and provide additional financial assistance to Berlin and Warsaw, pointing to insufficient resources to cope with the influx of people. Feser and Kaminsky, in particular, proposed that the EC pay €1,000 at a time from EU funds to each arriving refugee.
