2FD77E15-9F4A-4BE6-B86F-DFDDA4082D85_w640_r1_s (1)Close to a hundred Crimean Tatars will be arriving in Lviv this week. The city has already housed 20 families of the Crimean Euromaidan activists who were being threatened, as reported by the Euromaidan group from Lviv.

Residents of Simferopol, Sevastapol, Kerch, Yevpatoria, and Yalta contacted the hotline of the Lviv region requesting temporary housing. Mostly they ask to accommodate women and children.

Over only 12 hours, more than 20 Lviv families that are ready to take up to 2-3 families from Crimea, came forward. Some hotel owners and managers of health resorts in Lviv will give rooms to Crimeans for temporary accommodation free of cost.

“There are calls from directors of health resorts in the oblast.  In this way, Crimeans can even improve their health,” says the head of the Lviv council, Petro Kolodiy.

All who would like to welcome Crimeans and residents of Crimea who want to come to Lviv can call the following telephone numbers: 032 261 65 30, 093 704 76 87, 096 212 82 00  and the telephone hotline at: 0-800-501-727.
