Romania is prepared to accept 500,000 Ukrainian refugees, the country’s Defense Minister Vasile Dincu told reporters Tuesday.
According to a report from Reuters, Dincu said “there are several estimates, but we could receive over 500,000 refugees, that is…the number for which we have prepared alongside the interior ministry and other institutions.”
Dincu added that “there is a plan prepared for all large cities, there are areas for this near the borders.”
Romania shares approximately 380 miles of border with Ukraine. Reuters noted that the country saw “relatively few” Ukrainian refugees when Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula in February and March 2014.
“We are also not expecting a major influx coming here now, but one never knows,” Dincu told reporters. (Read more from “Romania Prepared to Accept 500,000 Ukrainian Refugees: Report” HERE)
