The European Union Commissioner for Home Affairs Ylva Johansson said on Sunday that the EU needs to prepare for millions of Ukrainian refugee arrivals.
“It’s very difficult to guess how many, but I think we should be prepared for millions,” Johansson said.
She added that so far “around 300,000 Ukrainians have come to the EU member states.”
Interior ministers from across the EU are meeting in Brussels to discuss the fallout from the crisis in Ukraine.
Johansson said she will “launch a solidarity platform” to coordinate the different kind of support that member states will need, and “to Ukrainians that are fleeing Ukraine.”
