Berlin has “practically run out” of ways to accept refugees.

Ruling Burgomaster Franziska Giffay said so, DW reported.

“We urgently need more federal real estate to house people well,” she said.

Giffay also stressed the need for financial support to cover the enormous costs and for a fair distribution of refugees across federal lands.

According to the burgomaster, about 340 thousand citizens of Ukraine received first aid in Berlin, 100 thousand remain in the capital.

Earlier, the German Government Commissioner for Migration Rim Alabali-Radovan called to prepare for a possible new influx of refugees from Ukraine.

Now the number of arriving fugitives from the war in Ukraine has dropped to about 150 people a day, “but a harsh war winter could change that,” Alabali-Radovan said.
