A state of emergency (ES) has been introduced in the Voronezh region due to an increase in the number of refugees from the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. This was announced on Instagram by the Governor of the Voronezh region Alexander Gusev.

“The flow of people from the LPR and DPR is growing. That is why it is important to accommodate arrivals in temporary accommodation centers as quickly and comfortably as possible. To do this, he introduced an emergency regime in the region, ”Gusev wrote.

The governor explained that the introduction of such a regime would allow the authorities of the region to quickly resolve issues related to refugees – provide them with household items, organize testing for COVID-19, allocate funding and more.
