Russian Refugees Flee from East Ukraine

Dmitry Orlov: lives in America and has a Wikipedia page about himself that can be read herehttp://cluborlov.blogspot.se/2014/06/people-on-move.html has a post on the huge growth of the refugee population all over the world but also from Eastern Ukraine to Russia.

Reports have been coming in of large numbers of Russian refugees from Eastern Ukraine. I heard about this on Swedish radio on 2 July. It seems the Russian side of the border has been prepared for this by putting up numerous marquees (see also BBC News, below).

BBC News (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-27993547) has the most detailed reports, so I use this source most. The BBC item of 24 June is the first I have read in the British media: The Ukrainian Refugees Escaping to Russia (24 June, Russian estimate 14,000 refugees). “The aid is being sent from Moscow, St Petersburg, Volgograd, Chelyabinsk, in fact from all over Russia,” Alexei tells me. “There are clothes, medicines and food. The scale of the problem is colossal.”

Swedish Radio (English) has also reported on this, but its only about the few hundred refugees coming to Sweden from Ukraine. This is all it says on “the fighting happening in the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk:

“According to the UN Refugee Agency, there are about 10,000 internally displaced people in Ukraine, from the annexation of the Crimean peninsula and the fighting happening in the eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk.”

The Guardian has nothing on the flood of refugees to Russia, but headlines on Ukrainian capturing Slavyansk on Saturday.
