EU set to offer protection to fleeing Ukrainians

According to sources, the EU is expected to quickly adopt a protection system for the one million war refugees fleeing Ukraine, as well as establish a humanitarian hub in Romania.

The European Union’s moves came in tandem with the EU’s tough penalties against Russia, which were implemented in waves over the course of the invasion, which is now in its eighth day.

EU interior ministers attending a Brussels meeting on how to deal with the influx of Ukrainian refugees said they expected political support for a Temporary Protection Mechanism.

The mechanism was created in response to the hostilities in the former Yugoslavia two decades ago, but it was never employed.
