Latvia almost solved the problem of accommodating Ukrainian refugees

With the increase in the number of refugees from Ukraine fleeing the war abroad, the problem of their accommodation in small Latvia is growing. However, it seems that it is quite solvable.

They want to settle Ukrainians in Jurmala, reports bb.lvand Commonground.lv volunteers volunteered to help in solving all related issues.

The decision came after the leaders of the Latvian municipalities sounded the alarm: there is no longer enough housing for refugees in the Riga region, and there are more of them every day.

Since the end of February, according to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Latvia, 5880 Ukrainian refugees have been accommodated in the local governments of Latvia, 8165 citizens of Ukraine have received residence permits with the right to work. Most refugees are women and children, and only a few stay with relatives, acquaintances and friends.

However, Maris Sprindzhuks, chairman of the Adazi Regional Council and co-chairman of the Association of Local Governments of the Riga Region, notes that there are fewer and fewer places left for Ukrainians fleeing the war in the region. He explained that the surroundings of Riga were densely populated, so there were almost no opportunities to receive refugees.

But Commonground.lv volunteers proved that any problem can be solved if you think a little and weigh the possibilities. Everything will work out, and people tired of the war will be able to spend the coming summer even at a resort. More details – in the video.
