Greece has started offering temporary protection for the Ukrainian refugees at its regional asylum offices in Athens, Thessaloniki, Patras and on the island of Crete.
The initiative is taken to assist over 16,000 displaced Ukrainian refugees who have reached the country after joining millions of other refugees to fly to some other nations amid the Russian invasion.
The Greek Ministry of Immigration and Asylum provided that those who aspire to take shelter in Greece can make an online appointment through the digital platform. The applicant is deemed to provide an email address.
The process would be run under the surveillance of the Ministry of Immigration and Asylum Service for extended hours and with the help of the European Union Agency for Asylum.
The information regarding the application and other queries for displaced people from Ukraine who aspire to seek temporary protection in Greece can visit the official website of the Greek Ministry of Immigration and Asylum Service.
The Greek Citizen Protection Ministry provided on Saturday that almost around 16,431 Ukrainian refugees, of whom 5,036 are minors, have reached Greece since the commencement of the Russian invasion on February 24.
Many European countries also volunteered to launch asylum or reception centres for the Ukrainian refugees, including Poland, Finland, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Greece, Belgium and many more EU Commission countries.
Besides that, EU nation-states have also administered trauma centres for war-affected children, which will help to improve the mental illness of the kids due to Russia’s illegal invasion.
