Sofia, Bulgaria: The Deputy Prime Minister for Good Governance Kalina Konstantinova says that she sees no “reason” to resign from her post. The statement of Konstantinova came days after (on Sunday) the Bulgarian citizens demanded her resign.
“I do not see any point in giving a resign as you only resign when you fail to do your job”, underscored Konstantinova. The resignation of the minister is in relation to the issues of the resettlement of Ukrainian refugees.
“All those who needed shelter and food found them. Our government managed even better than many of our European partners”, she then added.
Speaking about the relocation and sheltering of the Ukrainian refugees, the leader cited, “We managed to avert a humanitarian crisis in Bulgaria“.
Under the new scheme started by the Bulgarian administration, a total of 270 hotels in the European country will be providing accommodation to the Ukrainian nationals who left the war-torn land. The hotels under the second phase of the programme will be provided BGN 15 for each Ukraine refugee, which earlier was provided BGN 40.
On one end, where more than 4,000 Ukraine refugees left Bulgaria, nearly 24,000 Ukrainian refugees for the present time are staying at hotels continuing their participation in the programme, the Deputy Prime Minister for Good Governance further added.
As the first phase of the scheme ended on May 31, around 10,000 Ukrainian refugees had to leave the hotels in Bulgaria, many of which moved to another accommodation, and the remaining left the European country. Meanwhile, some of the Ukraine refugees managed to get accommodation of their own.
The war between Russia and Ukraine has crossed 100 days. Health attacks are also increasing in war-hit country.
WHO asserted, “After one hundred days of the war, Ukraine’s health system is under severe pressure, and the WHO has hiked its presence, both in Ukraine & in those nations tries hosting displaced Ukrainians, to assist meet the escalating health needs”.
