PARIS, France – France is preparing accommodations for the first 10,000 refugees from Ukraine, French government spokesperson Gabriel Attal said.
The French national defense council has activated an inter – ministerial unit to prepare for and coordinate the arrival of Ukrainian refugees in France, he added.
On Tuesday, the French Citizenship Minister Marlene Schiappa said that 5,000 Ukrainians have already arrived in France. A website has been established for French people to volunteer to host Ukrainian families fleeing the war.
