About 200 refugees who arrived in the Rostov region from the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine refused to go to dinner at the temporary accommodation center in protest against the current situation.

According to RostovGazeta, citing data from volunteers, a total of about 200 people refused to come to dinner. So they decided to express their dissatisfaction.

What names were outraged by the refugees, the publication does not specify.

Earlier it was reported that against the backdrop of the violation of the truce in the Donbass on the night of February 18-19, a stream of refugees poured into Russia from the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, on the part of which the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics (DPR and LPR) are located.

The Rostov region, where the refugees went in the first place, was not ready for their influx. Families with children who passed through border crossings had to wait for hours to be placed in cold buses and on the street when the air temperature was about zero degrees.

Then they began to be settled in children's sanatoriums, camps and temporary accommodation centers (TACs), deployed in tents of the Ministry of Emergency Situations and in sports halls. All arrivals are examined by doctors, tested for coronavirus. The authorities of the Russian Federation promised to pay financial assistance of 10,000 rubles to each refugee.

Volunteers recruited from former children's camp staff report that they have to work with refugees almost around the clock. Some refugees expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that as TAPs in the Rostov region filled up, they began to be moved inland.

Now trains with refugees from the DPR and LPR, which have already arrived over 61 thousand people , are sent to the Kursk and Voronezh regions, where, due to the current situation, as in Rostov , a state of emergency has also been declared. Since February 21, the state of emergency has been introduced in the Penza region, where they are also waiting for an influx of evacuees from the LDNR. In total, about 30 regions of the country expressed their readiness to accept refugees.
