To date, since the outbreak of the Russian offensive last week, 500,000 Ukrainians have fled their country, according to the United Nations High Commissioner.
Faced with this exodus, the president of the Departmental Council of the Alpes-Maritimes, Charles Ange Ginésy, has just proposed the repatriation of 1,000 refugees thanks to special flights and to relocate them to the department.
Housing available throughout the department
These flights were already booked by the Alpes-Maritimes for school trips to the Auschwitz and Birkenau camps in Poland.
"The war situation at the gates of Poland leads us to cancel these trips, but we maintain the chartering of flights to participate in the management of the migration crisis", writes Charles Ange Ginésy in a press release.
In order to accommodate these refugees, the Alpes-Maritimes department has launched a rehousing census with landlords and social partners as well as mayors.
In one day, "we have already listed a potential of several hundred beds and the proposals continue to flow", indicates the president.
From Thursday, a platform will be set up for all the inhabitants of the department who wish, on an individual basis, to host someone "if
the capacities of the communities were not enough”, it is specified.
