Thousands of Ukrainian refugees stand under the snow on the border with Romania

It snowed near the Siret-Porubne checkpoint. At the same time, thousands of refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine are waiting to enter Romania, unable to hide.

 

Many have abandoned their cars and are walking to the border crossing point, where capacity has been increased. Others are waiting in cars, in a column stretching for more than ten kilometers, stirisuceava.net reports.

“On the night from Sunday to Monday, it snowed in this area, and people were forced to take shelter as best they could. They tried to keep warm with the few clothes they took when they hurriedly left their homes,” local media wrote.

Refugees who had already arrived in Romania had the opportunity to take refuge in tents set up by volunteers and the authorities.
