European nations are working together to assist Ukrainian refugees who have been uprooted as a result of the current Russia-Ukraine conflict.
In most countries, state bodies, non-governmental organizations, and ordinary individuals are rallying together to offer facilities for the refugees, whose numbers exceed 3.8 million, according to the UN.
Moreover, Poland, which has taken in over 2.2 million refugees, provides them with work and residency permits for up to 18 months, as well as financial assistance.
Authorities in the Czech Republic have granted special visas that give the Ukrainian refugees certain rights, such as jobs, health care, and education. Approximately 300,000 Ukrainian refugees have arrived in the country so far since the beginning of Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine.
Hungary has set aside a monthly stipend for companies that recruit Ukrainian refugees, of which roughly 350,000 have arrived in the nation so far. Romania, which has taken in 586,000 Ukrainians, has granted them a nine-month work permit.
Germany, which is hosting 260,000 Ukrainian refugees, has provided them with free public transportation, residency permits without investigation, and health care.
Furthermore, the UK, for its part, is distributing monetary help to accommodate the refugees, whose present number stands at around 12,000.
In addition, France has given an extra €400 million (about $440,000) to host more Ukrainian refugees.
The 25,000 Ukrainian refugees who have arrived in Spain are eligible for social security benefits.
The Russia-Ukraine conflict, which started on February 24, has met international outrage, with the European Union, United States, and the United Kingdom imposing harsh financial sanctions on Russia.
According to estimates by the United Nations, at least 1,151 civilians have been killed in Ukraine and 1,842 injured, with the actual figure likely to be far higher.
According to the United Nations refugee agency, more than 3.87 million Ukrainians have also fled to neighboring countries, with millions more displaced inside the country.
