The state has informed several districts and the city of Frankfurt that those state-owned emergency shelters that are set up in sports halls can be closed on June 11, the Ministry of the Interior in Wiesbaden announced.

In view of the falling number of Ukrainian war refugees, Hessen wants to do without emergency accommodation in sports halls. The state has informed several districts and the city of Frankfurt that those state-owned emergency shelters that are set up in sports halls can be closed on June 11, the Ministry of the Interior in Wiesbaden announced.

According to the ministry, more than 57,400 people have arrived in Hesse in connection with the war in Ukraine (as of May 8). Around 50,900 were accommodated in the municipalities, more than 6500 currently lived in the initial reception center in Gie├čen, its branch offices or in the emergency shelters.

“Even two and a half months after Putin’s war began, Hesse stands in solidarity with the Ukrainians, who can continue to count on our support,” said Interior Minister Peter Beuth (CDU). However, since fewer Ukrainian refugees have come in recent weeks and the capacity in the initial reception center has increased at the same time, the emergency shelters set up in March could close.

“They are available again for regular use and thus in particular for sport and clubs,” emphasized Beuth. Should more people come to Hesse again as the war progressed, emergency accommodation would be provided again.
