Ukraine (bbabo.net), - Twelve of Germany's sixteen federal states have declared a lack of places for migrants due to the massive influx of refugees from Ukraine and other countries, the editorial association Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND) has reported, citing a press secretary of the Ministry internal affairs of Germany.
According to the spokesman, the decision to impose restrictions was made due to the increased workload due to "the situation with Ukrainian refugees and an increase in the number of migrants from other countries."
“Due to the massive influx of asylum seekers, twelve federal states have announced they are no longer participating in the primary distribution mechanism,” said an agency spokeswoman. “In particular, there is currently an increase in the number of detentions (illegal immigrants) trying to enter the EU through the Balkans.”
At the same time, she explained that the termination of the participation of most lands in the primary distribution mechanism is a "temporary measure", adding that such a practice "is not something unusual."
Moreover, distribution is still possible as the large federal states of Germany continue to receive people," the spokeswoman said.
The Interior Ministry spokeswoman added that the federal government is assisting local authorities and responsible authorities by providing real estate to accommodate migrants, and is currently considering other support measures.
As Die Welt noted, the total number of refugees from Ukraine who came to Germany amounted to more than 980,000 people. At the same time, the press secretary of the department stressed that in recent weeks, “an average of only 875 Ukrainians arrive in Germany every day.”
