OREANDA-NEWS As of June 9, there were about 4.8 million refugees from Ukraine in European countries, the Ukrainska Pravda news agency said, citing an analysis by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

According to the UN, about 2.3 million people crossed the border in the opposite direction. The Ukrainian media do not rule out that this figure recorded people who traveled back and forth several times. The UN claims that most of the Ukrainian refugees live in Poland: more than 1.15 million people.

Earlier it became known that the Latvian cabinet agreed to extend support measures for Ukrainian refugees.

Amendments to the Law "On support for Ukrainian civilians" stipulate that such primary support as accommodation of Ukrainian refugees will be provided for up to 120 days, but no longer than December 31, 2022. In addition, the amendments to the law say that individuals and legal entities will also be able to receive compensation for the accommodation of refugees from Ukraine.
