Federal Minister of the Interior Faeser: More than a million refugees from Ukraine recorded

In the meantime, more than a million refugees from Ukraine have been registered in Germany. Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser gave the news portal T-Online the number 1,002,763. "We saved the lives of many women and children from Ukraine," said the SPD politician after a report on Friday. "We have managed this huge task well so far, much better than in previous escape movements."

Faeser spoke of a humanitarian effort. "The longer the war lasts, the more difficult it is to house and care for so many refugees," said the minister. She has invited local and state representatives to coordinate refugee aid next Tuesday. There is uncertainty about the number of Ukrainians living here. It is unclear how many of those who have entered Germany since the beginning of the war have left the Federal Republic.

Faeser was concerned that more people are coming to Europe via the Mediterranean and the Balkan route. "That worries me," she said. "That's why we're counteracting this with a bundle of measures."

Border controls with Austria had already been extended in May. At the border with the Czech Republic, the federal police are increasingly using veiled manhunts. Austria and the Czech Republic also controlled their borders more closely. "We have a shared responsibility to stop illegal entries so that we can continue to help people who urgently need our support," said the minister.
