Berlin, 19 August. The capital of Germany has reached a critical point in the reception of Ukrainian refugees due to lack of space. It is reported by Euronews agency.

According to the Berlin Refugee Office, more than 3,000 places are not enough to cope with the influx of Ukrainian refugees. Over 400 people are currently housed temporarily in a modular city located on the site of the former Tempelhof Airport.

670,000 out of 940,000 Ukrainian refugees who arrived in Germany registered in the temporary protection program. Approximately half of them reside in Berlin.

The city authorities are looking for urgent measures to provide refugees with permanent housing, especially given the approach of autumn and winter.

“We are going to have a baby here and stay in Germany. We really like Berlin and we have already found many offers in this city. There is a very pleasant mentality and very good people here, without enmity,” said Albina, who, like many other Ukrainians, plans to stay in Europe.

InfoMigrants reported earlier that hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refugees who arrived in Germany have poor job prospects in the European country, despite government promises. At least 350 thousand Ukrainians are currently registered in the job search system. According to an Ifo survey, although 90% of refugees want to find a job, only half of them have found any source of income.
