Pushkov: the mass Exodus of refugees to Russia will not be


ATHENS, 15 February. /Corr. Denis Kabanov/. Mass Exodus of refugees to Russia will not, because they are technically difficult to reach the territory of the Russian Federation. This was stated by the Chairman of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Alexei Pushkov at a meeting with journalists in Athens.

“It seems to me that the President of Finland Sauli Niinist√∂ (asserting that Russia threatens Turkey’s location, host large numbers of people fleeing war) more concerned Scandinavian countries in this scenario than this scenario really exists, – the MP noted. – Just look at the map to understand that the mass Exodus of refugees to Russia will not be simple, because they are technically difficult to reach Russian territory.”

“All those refugees who came to Sweden, Finland, Denmark, all came through the EU and this thread was very significant, – said Pushkov. – I think the EU is necessary to think still how to solve this question by using the tools that have the most Union and through internal arrangements. In the case of Russia, we can talk about tens, maybe hundreds, but not thousands, tens and hundreds of thousands who have come through the EU, and no other thread can’t be and never will be”.
