On Friday, the federal government launched a website including information on the situation in Ukraine, aiming to centralise all information on the conflict, including the possible impact on Belgium.
The website, which is available in English, French, Dutch and German, includes information for Belgians in Ukraine and Russia as well as for Ukrainians in Belgium and displaced people and for the country's municipalities or citizens wishing to accommodate refugees. So far, more than 10,000 temporary shelters have been offered.
Ukrainians who fled the war in their country will find information about their rights when they arrive in Belgium, the steps they must take, how the reception of refugees is organised, and other relevant details.
