Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, Ireland, a small country, has received more than 102,000 of our fellow citizens, and, apparently, soon assistance from this state will decrease, and not only because the budget for financial support for our refugees has been exhausted.
About the fact that Ireland, on whose territory there are a considerable number of refugees from our country, decided to significantly reduce the amount of material assistance for newly arrived Ukrainians, writes NBN, citing material from the local newspaper Independent.
As it became known, this reduction in the amount of payments to Ukrainians will be introduced with the aim of minimizing the flow of people who provoked the housing crisis in Ireland
In particular, at the moment the weekly rate of assistance to refugees is calculated in hundreds of euros , but for new arrivals, the amount of funds will be cut to dozens:
- current amount – 232 euros/weekly;
- updated size – 38.8 euros/weekly.
In addition, newly arrived Ukrainian refugees will not be able to stay in Ireland for a long time—they will not be given more than 90 days of free accommodation in public housing.
Earlier, our news portal reported that the Czech government would begin to pay money for the voluntary return of Ukrainians home.
