Baden-Württemberg: More than 100,000 war refugees in Baden-Württemberg

Three months after the start of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, the number of war refugees in Baden-Württemberg has exceeded a new mark. A high of the previous refugee crisis is exceeded.

Stuttgart (dpa/lsw) - Three months after the start of the Ukraine war, more than 100,000 war refugees have already been registered in Baden-Württemberg. Since the beginning of the war, the authorities in the southwest have registered 104,222 refugees from Ukraine (as of May 23), as the Ministry of Justice responsible for migration announced on Tuesday in Stuttgart. This means that more people were registered within three months than in the whole of 2015 - the peak of the refugee crisis at the time. At that time, 101,141 asylum seekers came to Baden-Württemberg.

"After three months of war, we are observing how quickly we get used to the terrible pictures and headlines," said Migration Minister Marion Gentges (CDU) in Stuttgart. That is human and understandable. But war must not become normal. "Let us remain vigilant and continue to find the compassion and drive with which we have taken responsibility and contributed over the past three months of this crisis," Gentges said.

The vast majority of the more than 100,000 Ukrainian refugees are housed in the municipalities. According to the information, around 2,700 are currently in the first receptions in the country. Compared to March, the access numbers have recently fallen, it said. In March, up to 300 refugees from Ukraine alone arrived at the initial reception centers; in May, the average was less than 200 per day.

For the ministry, however, this number does not show any relaxation. Rather, it shows that the number of people entering the initial reception centers has leveled off at a consistently high level. Russia began its invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
