Migration Min Mitarachi: Greece Is Open to Hosting Ukrainian Refugees

February 28, 2022

ATHENS – “Greece is open to hosting Ukrainian refugees, we consider it our obligation to take part in this humanitarian chain,” underlined Migration and Asylum Minister Notis Mitarachi while speaking to the public broadcaster ERT on Monday.

Mitarachi said that “it should become obligatory for all EU member-states to contribute to the redistribution of the flows from Ukraine. Just as we asked for this when we faced the crisis with Turkey, it is a matter of principle to also say this now, when we must support the countries of Eastern Europe”.
