According to Gannushkina, at present, just over 500 Ukrainians have real refugee status in Russia. All the rest, and this is about 300 thousand people, are in limbo - they are granted temporary shelter for a year. It must be renewed every year.
"Problems began even with the Ukrainians. They do not get the extension of the temporary refugee status that is given for a year, and they are deported", - Gannushkina said.
"Moreover, the most amazing thing is that those who fought on the side of the "LNR/DNR", so to speak, these people are being expelled to Ukraine", - she stated.
