One hundred and thirty Russian citizens who were forced to leave the territory of the Gaza Strip will be accommodated in the Kaluga region in a temporary facility specially created for this, regional governor Vladyslav Shapsha said.
According to him, the corresponding decision was taken by the Federal headquarters for work with refugees. Shapsha did not specify when exactly and for what period temporary housing will be provided for the evacuees.
Earlier, the Russian ambassador to Israel, Anatoly Viktorov, said that a total of 600 Russians are expected to be evacuated from the Gaza Strip, where hostilities are taking place.
Last week, the first group of 70 people was brought to the operational headquarters of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia in Cairo, after which they flew to Moscow on a special plane of the department. In total, according to official data, more than 150 Russian citizens have already left Gaza.
- According to the latest data, about 1,400 people, including 23 Russians, died in Israel as a result of the attack by the radical group Hamas, recognized by the USA and the EU as a terrorist group, and more than 11,000 were killed in Israel’s retaliatory strikes on the Gaza Strip. The number of wounded on both sides exceeded thirty thousand people. Hamas continues to hold hostage about 240 people captured on the day of its invasion of Israel.
