Germany allocated EUR2.4 billion ($2.40bn), to cover the care of Ukrainian refugees. Hubertus Heil was quoted by RND newspaper.
Heil said that approximately 800,000.00 Ukrainians have fled to Germany in search of refuge. They are all younger than 14 years old.
The German Labour Office reported last month that the unemployment rate is increasing as more people from Ukraine register with it to find work.
Heil said that 360,000 Ukrainians have been registered with Germany’s welfare program, while 260,000 are job-seekers.
He stated, “It’s now about putting these into work.”
Wednesday, 13 July, the UN Refugee Agency reported that more than 9,000,000 people have crossed the Ukrainian border in the time since Russia invaded.
