Ukrainians will want to stay in hotels by the sea after the end of May, when the government will stop paying hoteliers 40 leva for each refugee and today they do not want to leave Sunny Beach.

According to bourgas.ru, Ukrainians will want to stay in hotels by the sea after the end of May, when the government will stop paying hoteliers 40 leva for each refugee and do not want to leave Sunny Beach today.

In the meantime, the first tourists are already arriving in Sunny Beach and many hotels with refugees are booked with tourists. In Sunny Beach, both hoteliers and Ukrainians are worried.

“Then it just became known to us. Accordingly, hoteliers and tour operators are worried because we are canceling reservations for the active summer season. We have a proposal for hoteliers — everyone who can will provide part of their base for the active season,” commented hotelier Elena Andonova.

However, this can only happen if the government extends the program. Natalia from Kyiv insists on this. She hopes to be able to stay at the hotel at least until autumn.

“We are grateful to Bulgaria for providing us with asylum and protection. And we beg our mothers and children to leave us and not to relocate us, because yesterday I saw the conditions where they can relocate us with children. There are no conditions there, ”Natalia said.

“We really want the government to rethink its decision in order to meet Ukrainian refugees who suffered in the war with Russia. Lots of destroyed houses. We simply have nowhere to return to,” Natalia stressed.

Mostly mothers with small children stay in hotels, so it is difficult for them to start working.

“I can leave the child with my sister. I want to work, of course, but we’ll see,” says one of the refugees.

“My observation and the observation of my colleagues – in terms of accommodating Ukrainians in our hotels and the desire to hire them, we definitely refuse. We don’t hire Ukrainians because they don’t want to work,” said Elena Ivanova from the Union of Owners in Sunny Beach.

Some of the Ukrainians have already had the opportunity to see one of the bases where they will eventually be relocated. This is a children’s camp in Ravda. There are complaints about the dining room, which has not been renovated. There are other buildings that have not been repaired, they do not want to live in.

However, the first group of children is expected at the camp at the end of June. There are reservations for the whole summer and it is not clear what will happen to them. There are about 900 children’s camps in the region, and there are about 40,000 Ukrainian refugees on the southern Black Sea coast.
