The European Parliament endorses allocating more funds for the reception of Ukrainian refugees on the front line of the EU

BRUSSELS, June 23 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The plenary session of the European Parliament has approved this Thursday to amend the community budget to reinforce aid from the migration and asylum fund to the countries on the front line of the arrival of refugees fleeing the invasion of Ukraine, especially Poland, Slovakia and Hungary .

The objective is that they receive more funds to pay for the first reception and registration of those who arrive from Ukraine seeking refuge after the Russian invasion, by unlocking 76 million euros for the Migration and Asylum Fund and committing the payment of another almost 100 million.

These resources are used to finance adequate first reception services, food, accommodation, sanitation, clothing, medicines, family tracing, legal and translation assistance, psychological support and other services necessary for your registration in an EU country.


The border and visa management fund will also be reinforced with an additional 100 million euros, with the aim of streamlining procedures at the external border such as the identification of new arrivals, fingerprinting, registration and carrying out checks on safety and medical.

Citizens of Ukraine could already enter the European Union before the war without needing a visa for stays of up to 90 days, but after the Russian invasion the European Union activated temporary protection that guarantees them freedom of movement on community soil and also the right to reside and work in EU countries for at least one year.
