The number of Ukrainian refugees in Ireland exceeds 10,000

Over 10,000 Ukrainian refugees, mostly women, and children have arrived in Ireland since the war began in the eastern European country, Independent.co.uk reported.

At a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, attended virtually from Washington by the Taoiseach after he tested positive for Covid-19 last week, the Government continued preparations for tens of thousands of Ukrainian refugees arriving into the country in the coming weeks.

Earlier, the Minister for Agriculture said that it was possible that 200,000 Ukrainians might arrive in the Republic of Ireland in the months to come, with the Government pledged to take in 2 percent of all refugees who flee the war-torn country.
