Monika Navickienė, Minister of Social Security and Labour of the Baltic Republic, believes that Lithuania could host around 25,000 people
The Lithuanian authorities are looking for accommodation facilities in case of a new influx of Ukrainian refugees, which may start in the cold season due to the destruction of the communal infrastructure in Ukraine. This was stated by Monika Navickienė, the Minister of Social Protection and Labour of the Baltic Republic, on the air of the radio station Ziniu Radijas on Thursday.
The Minister admitted that the living conditions there would be less comfortable compared to the conditions in which refugees received by Lithuania earlier. “However, we will provide a roof over our heads, a warm night shelter and hot meals”, Navitskienė noted.
According to the statistics agency of the Baltic republic, 64,900 Ukrainian refugees are now in Lithuania.
