In anticipation of the state, hoteliers began to relocate Ukrainian refugees to state institutions on the Black Sea coast before the May 31 deadline, thus the first refugees from Ukraine have already left hotels in Bulgaria.

As bourgas.ru reports, in anticipation of the state, hoteliers began to relocate Ukrainian refugees to state institutions on the Black Sea coast before the May 31 deadline, thus the first refugees from Ukraine have already left hotels in Bulgaria.

One of these bases is the state enterprise “Student Recreation and Sports” under the Ministry of Education. Closed for two years due to the pandemic, it was put into operation in just a few days and now hosts 170 refugees from Ukraine. There are about 60 of them at the neighboring base.

Refugees and hoteliers alike remain in the dark about the government’s post-May 31 resettlement plan.

As of yesterday, the base in Ravda is filled with Ukrainian refugees – women and children. Lyuda managed to escape with her little son, but her parents and husband remained in Irpen.

“People with many children from Irpen and Bucha live on the first floor, they tell terrible things, it’s very scary. We are looking for options, maybe hotels that have closed. There is another building that was provided to us. It was repaired a bit, and people are happy,” says project coordinator Natalya Yampolskaya.

“The base was occupied in just a few hours, on the same day for four or five hours, and both bases were filled … I don’t know of others in this area,” explained Elena Andonova, a hotelier.

By the way, we note that some hoteliers in Bulgaria have united in an association and insist on continuing the program. They do not want to resettle Ukrainians.
