40,000 Ukraine Refugees in Rostov

More than 40,000 refugees from conflict-ridden eastern Ukraine have settled in Russia's neighboring Rostov region, state news agency ITAR-Tass reported.

About a third of the refugees — 13,300 — are children, the agency reported, citing the Emergency Situations Ministry. Only 5,000 of the refugees are still in temporary housing, while 32,000 are reportedly staying with friends and family.

Earlier, the Federal Migration Service said that more than 400,000 Ukrainians have come to Russia since April to flee the escalating violence in their country's east.
