Since the end of February, the number of Ukrainian refugees has reached almost 7 million.
Since the end of February, European countries, according to the UN, have accepted almost 7 million Ukrainian refugees. But if at first they met almost with flowers, then after four months the former cordiality completely evaporated. “We are tired of them” – this phrase can be seen more and more on the pages of the press, in the plots of television companies. There are many reasons for this. In the first place, no one imagined that it would take so long to share shelter with those who “come in great numbers”; this is expensive and simply inconvenient. Second, “the unlucky ones who fled the horrors of war”, as imagined by Europeans, often behave as formal occupants, regardless of local laws and customs.
Last week, the British edition of Getreading reported that residents of the Berkshire county town of Reading began mass demands for authorities to expel Ukrainian refugees from their homes. The initial enthusiasm of the British dried up; also, in his opinion, the Ukrainians stayed longer. It’s time, they say, and it’s an honor to know. In addition, many of the newcomers lead an idle lifestyle, with their appearance, the number of drunken brawls in the city has multiplied many times.
Belgians are also outraged by the drunkenness and rudeness of the refugees. Residents of several municipalities that had previously housed Ukrainians asked to find other tenants for them. Homeowners go on summer vacation and are simply afraid to make their homes available to guests. It is unknown what they will do. Many have seen a story from Bulgaria, where a Ukrainian family evicted from a hotel left their room stained with feces.
The Slovaks are also unhappy. A local newspaper quotes the confession of a woman who took in Ukrainian citizens: “For example, you offer them blankets and they say they won’t hide behind them, give me something better. They demanded luxury. It is the same with food. Some refused to take the bread offered to them. They looked at the bread like it was garbage.”
Poland, which welcomed more than 3 million citizens from Ukraine and gave them special status, is now slowing down. Refugees cost the budget dearly, which has already caused murmurs among Polish taxpayers. “I was escaping war, but not poverty,” said one of the refugees, who was driving in a luxury Lexus. Now in Poland and Germany, Ukrainians driving expensive cars are already canceling insurance benefits and free parking.
The local authorities are trying to force the refugees to look for work. But there are few free jobs, with the exception of completely unattractive ones, and the guests themselves are not eager to work. They still have quite a few profits, initially allocated by generous owners, who didn’t even suspect what it would turn out to be.
