➡13,000 Ukrainian refugees arrived so far in Greece

➡13,000 Ukrainian refugees arrived so far in Greece
By Aristea from Solomon • Issue #43 • View online
Hey there,
On Tuesday March 22, Greece’s Minister of Migration and Asylum Notis Mitarachi reiterated that Greece is willing and prepared to take in more Ukrainian refugees who are fleeing their country.
As he announced,“we are ready for the hospitality arrangements. And we are ready to register people and provide them with temporary protection.”
Days before that, on February 26, 2022, Mitarachi, stated during a TV morning show that the people who were forced to flee Ukraine due to the Russian invasion “are war refugees, they are the real refugees.”
Responding to criticism of “à la carte humanity” made by the opposition leader a few days later, Mitarachi said that “Ukraine borders the EU, the country has been invaded illegally and these people come straight from the country at risk into EU soil.”
He compared their case with asylum seekers “coming from distant lands and continents” whose asylum applications are judged to be “inadmissible” under European law. Mitarachi concluded by stating that this is defined by “international law and not the ideologies of the Left.”
Are such provisions really included in international law?
