According to Vit Rakushan, the fifth part of the refugees returned from European countries to Ukraine. Those who have previously received temporary protection status can spend the winter in the EU.

Ukrainian refugees who have already returned home from Europe can come to the EU countries for the winter. This was stated by the Minister of the Interior of the Czech Republic, Vit Rakusan, reports Ceske Noviny.

According to him, this is possible if the citizens of Ukraine have issued the status of temporary protection, which has been granted to Ukrainians in the EU since March.

“If someone has left for Ukraine, lives in Ukraine, has already received temporary protection in one of the EU countries, he has the right to return to the EU if the conditions do not allow him to stay in Ukraine for the winter,” the Interior Minister commented.

Rakushan also said that during the full-scale war in Ukraine, the Czech Republic issued 454,000 protective visas to Ukrainians. About a third are children and young people under the age of 18, more than two thirds of adults are women. How many of them live directly in the Czech Republic today is unknown. At the same time, 20% of those who arrived have already returned to Ukraine.

Over the past eight months, 4.3 million refugees from Ukraine left for the EU countries. As the head of the Czech Ministry of Internal Affairs stressed, a fifth of them returned home from Europe.

If Ukrainians again go to European countries, the total number of refugees in the EU could grow to five million, says Rakusan. At the same time, the Czech Republic can now accept no more than 500 thousand people.

“I have been saying for a long time that in order to be able to provide decent accommodation, everything that exceeds half a million arrivals is already a big burden both for for the health care system and for the education system, but above all for decent accommodation,” the Czech official specified.

While in the summer this issue could be resolved through tent camps, in winter this option is not possible .

“The situation will be much more difficult,” he concluded.

Vereshchuk later explained that this appeal should be regarded not as an instruction, but as a request. First of all, the appeal concerns women with children who had to leave because of the hostilities and the temporary occupation of Ukrainian territories.
