Erfurt (dpa/th) - The migration committee of the state parliament will deal with the problems with the accommodation of Ukrainian war refugees in Thuringia on Thursday (10 a.m.). The CDU parliamentary group had requested the special session of the committee with reference to an escalating situation. The background is that, according to the state administration office, nine districts or independent cities no longer saw any possibility of offering refugees a place to stay. According to the CDU parliamentary group, it submitted a 22-point catalog of questions for the committee meeting.
"It has to be clarified how many refugees are there, where they are to be distributed, how they will be accommodated, who will pay the bill for them and which districts can still manage all of this," explained the migration policy spokesman for the CDU parliamentary group, Stefan Schard .
According to the State Administration Office, Thuringia has taken in more than 24,000 refugees from Ukraine and around 2,500 asylum seekers, mainly from Syria, this year. According to a paper by the State Chancellery, the forecast is for a total of around 40,000 refugees in Thuringia this year, including 35,000 Ukrainian war refugees and displaced persons.
