Spouses and 9 children from Kramatorsk asked asylum in Poland


Almost every day border guards of Mostytskyi Detachment let pass the citizens through the western border of Ukraine to Poland wishing to get refugee status in this country. If since the beginning of these events in Ukraine, mainly the refugees from the Crimea departed to the neighboring country, so now with the tension growth in the eastern oblasts, residents of Luhansk and Donetsk go to Poland. Thus, during the previous day a family with many children (spouses and nine children) left the town of Kramatrosk, Donetsk oblast through the check point “Shegeni”. Because of constants fights in the region the parents decided to seek asylum abroad.

In total, from March 20 Poland has accepted 266 persons, out of which 260 citizens of Ukraine, 1 citizen of Egypt and 5 Russians.
