Justice Minister Emilie Enger Mehl (SP) says the first Ukrainian refugees from Moldova that Norway has agreed to take in will come next week.

“The plan is for them to come next week, and then I look forward to us being able to receive them in a good way in Norway,” Mehl told TV 2. 

It has been two weeks since it became known that Norway has agreed to bring 2,500 Ukrainian refugees from Moldova.

The government states that Norway is opening up, among other things, to accepting people with disabilities, pregnant women, women with small or many children, and other vulnerable people.

“We must ensure that we help vulnerable people who need help and that we have control over who we transfer to Norway. We must be sure of the identity of those who will come here,” Mehl said.

According to the UN, more than 387,000 Ukrainian refugees have arrived in Moldova, Europe’s poorest country, since the war began.
