Federal police have so far counted more than 200,000 refugees from Ukraine in Germany. Ukrainian President Zelenskyy calls on Russia to seriously negotiate a ceasefire. Current news at a glance.
More than three million people have been displaced from Ukraine by the war. The number of war refugees counted in Germany has passed the 200,000 mark. To date, the federal police have registered 207,742 people. Since there are no fixed border controls, the number should actually be much higher, as announced by the Federal Interior Ministry. The German Association of Cities has asked refugees to have access to the social benefit system of Book II of the Social Code, which applies to the unemployed. City council chairman Markus Lewe told Funke newspapers that refugees should also be included in the health insurance system in the future and that they currently only have rudimentary health protection. “This is because they receive help under the Asylum Seeker Benefits Act,” said the mayor of Münster. The Association of German Teachers has asked for quick help for the education of refugee children.
