The State Migration Service requests that Ukrainian citizens not be classified as refugees and that programs for their integration in the host country not be established. Natalia Naumenko, the head of SMS, reported this.

Almost all Ukrainians who had to leave Ukraine have temporary protection in the countries where they are staying. This protection is being extended from time to time.

Ukraine is developing efficient methods to bring back our people.
