Orbán: All refugees from Ukraine taken care of in Hungary

All refugees from Ukraine are being taken care of in Hungary, the prime minister said in Beregsurany, at the Hungary-Ukraine border, on Thursday.

Orbán told the press that “in times of trouble, calmness, levelheadedness, experience and routine are of paramount importance”.

“We have crisis-tolerant ministers,” Orbán said, adding that most had already handled some kind of crisis, so coordination was working well.

He said the work of volunteers was well-coordinated and no donation would go to waste, with handouts distributed and forwarded to the intended recipients.

Refugees without acquaintances in Hungary to accommodate them are being placed in temporary shelters, he said. Centres have been set up around Hungary where they will receive food and shelter, even if they must stay for a lengthy period, he added.

Orbán said preparations have started to organise work for refugees. “We will try to offer an opportunity for everyone to create their own livelihood,” he said, adding that “this is a work-based country, and here we help everyone get work.”
