During the three-hour talk of the governor of Primorsky Krai, Vladimir Miklushevsky, many promises were made to the people. We are interested in this:
Help refugees from Ukraine.
From the Mikhailovsky District, Miklushevsky was asked whether "we are planning to create a migration center in the province to help refugees from Ukraine." Such a family arrived in the Mikhailovsky District a month ago. People are trying to get refugee status. Vladimir Miklushevsky said that "we must help people who want to move from Ukraine or other places and settle in Primorye." He said that there are some problems regarding the internal documents of the FMS, but he “literally today” (that is, already yesterday) will call the director of the “migration office” personally and discuss the issue. Terms of resolving the issue silent.

“Nobody wants to be a refugee!” The working group discussed the legalization of Ukrainians in Vladivostok.
Helping Ukrainians coming to Primorye is not the first time becoming the main topic on the agenda of the maritime authorities. This time, first of all, it was about helping refugees in the only TAP in Vladivostok, located on the insular territory of the FEFU campus on the basis of the hostel number 8. The temporary accommodation center is equipped with 210 beds, and Anatoly Khmelinin, deputy director of the Main Directorate of the Primorsky Krai for fire safety, civil defense and emergency situations, is appointed as its head.
“In this issue, the timeline must be tightened. We cannot wait a month until people get status and begin to consider job vacancies, ”said Alexander Los.
Marina Zavyalova, deputy head of the UFMS, retorted: “We are marking time in the same place for several days. Today we learned that all citizens of Ukraine want to get exactly RWP (approx. VL.ru: temporary residence permit). They do not need refugee status. And then there are problems that are not yet resolved at the moment: medical certification and state duty - 2000 rubles from everyone who submits documents. Then the state will reimburse these two thousand people, but it will not happen soon. Now we have to find this money for them. We contacted Moscow, but no solution was found. There is an option to use sponsorship. On the part of the migration service, I cannot help here, no matter how much I want. ”
The nuances associated with obtaining status are decided by the joint work of the departments. However, representatives of the Finance Department and the Legal Department of the Primorsky Territory did not attend the meeting of the working group.

“No one is waiting for the manna from heaven” - visitors from Ukraine told about a new life in Vladivostok (PHOTOS).
Here you can read interviews of immigrants and refugees. In general, people are happy and hope for the best. Many have already found work. The following seems to me quite interesting:
We ask: "Why did Vladivostok choose?". A little thought, Natalya Fyodorovna replies, grinning: “We are the occupiers, as we are called. They wanted to go as far as possible. We want to stay here, but we cannot live in Vladivostok. Only in the region will be allowed somewhere. And in the Voronezh region was very bad in the TAC. People were rude. I said: “If the bullets were whistling over you and throwing bombs, you would also run somewhere.” But there are a lot of people coming. And here is good. Grandchildren feel great. ”

“Crimeans and Ukrainians will go to the shipbuilding complex '' Star '' - Dmitry Rogozin in Bolshoy Kamen (PHOTO).
On Saturday, August 30, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin arrived at the Zvezda plant in Bolshoy Kamen. The curator of the military-industrial complex and the state defense order held a meeting with the leadership of the Far Eastern Center for Shipbuilding and Ship Repair, the regional authorities. Behind closed doors they discussed construction at the shipyard plant, as well as the creation of a shipbuilding cluster in Primorye.
Dmitry Rogozin admitted that working hands are the main problem in the province. “The machines can be bought, delivered, the plant can be built. But the people in the Russian Far East is not enough. And in shipbuilding, even more so. If we talk about the plans for the development of this enterprise before the 2025 year, we need an additional about 10 thousands of workers. They will need to be brought up from local staff and invite professionals, providing them with housing, the Deputy Prime Minister said. - I think wages here will be pretty high. Higher than the whole edge. In this regard, there is motivation - people will come from other regions, from the European part of Russia. I think some part of the Crimean people will arrive - the shipbuilding industry is quite developed there. Given the situation in Ukraine, we can expect a large influx of workers and qualified specialists from the Nikolaev region — there are huge shipyards that now stand without any orders, and it is clear to all that Kiev does not need industry. And we need these people. They adapt very easily to new conditions. Now there are all conditions for the acquisition of citizenship. On the other hand, in the Primorsky Territory reserves are not exhausted. The main thing is where to live? The city with the status of ZATO has always been under such a virtual "fence". And you need real housing, which must be built quickly. This is the main problem - we will pay close attention to it. ”

Ukrainians from Mikhaylovka: “Most of the TAPs left, people carry medicines and sleeping bags to us”
The immigrants from the south-east of Ukraine, who were brought to the seaside village of Mikhaylovka, are looking for work and are leaving the temporary accommodation center, from where they were promised to expel 5 September (details ...). About how things are going, VL.ru told one of the inhabitants of the TACs Elena.
According to our interlocutor, today the TV has already been taken away from the TAP. Previously, she said that, citing safety standards, they were forbidden to erase people (if they had fallen into this case, the curators would not be happy). True, they are not promising to evict everyone now, September 5, but on Friday, 12. September 14, we recall, in Primorye elections of the governor will be held.
“Our family passed the passports in the FMS, we received certificates of identification. We participate in the State Program for the resettlement of compatriots. We wrote a statement that we want to become citizens of Russia. After three months, we will be given "temporary passports" (apparently, Elena means temporary residence permit - approx. VL.ru), in three years we will receive citizenship. We heard that it would be necessary to live in the same place in order to later acquire citizenship.
As for returning to the Donetsk region, we don’t know, no one calls us there, ”Elena said. - Most Ukrainians from Mikhailovka have already left. From 74, the person left is about 30. Tomorrow we are leaving for Olginsky district. So near the village of Milogradovo there is a farm where English cows are raised. My daughter and I will work as milkmaids, and my son-in-law will be a tractor driver. We were promised that we will earn by 20 thousand rubles, then - how we will work - maybe more. They say the school is there nearby, the son will ride the bus. Now my grandson is ill - for the third time since August 15. The doctors wanted to put the child in the hospital, but we refused - to leave tomorrow. People help: they carry the medicines that the doctors wrote us out, they brought the stroller, the bath, the clothes, the apples and the pears ... They even brought sleeping bags - they said if we were evicted so that we could sleep. ”
According to Elena, her compatriots are gradually finding work. One family went to Novoshakhtinsky (Mikhailovsky district), where his wife would work at a small bakery, and her husband a carpenter, he was even offered to open a workshop for assembling, hauling upholstered furniture. People go to Ivanovka, Grigorievka, Vladivostok.
Those who persistently do not hand over their Ukrainian passports have remained. People are afraid to remain without documents in general. The certificates that are issued to them for a time, in exchange for a passport, are valid only in the territory of the region. If people want to leave, they will remain without an identity card. The citizens of Ukraine can stay on the territory of Russia for up to six months (unlike other citizens of the CIS countries for whom there is a three-month “corridor”). Another thing is that they cannot get a job simply on the basis of Ukrainian passports - for this you need to decide on your status on Russian soil.

Migrants from Ukraine are not in a hurry to register for work and leave the TAC in Vladivostok - UFMS.
Representatives of the Situational Center for Work with Arrivals from Ukraine do not know cases of forced evictions of citizens from seaside TAPs. However, Ukrainians are asked not to hope that the items will always work. On Tuesday, 9 of September, at a press conference in Vladivostok, experts said that every day they help displaced people to draw up documents, although not everyone is in a hurry to legalize.
Today, on the territory of Primorye there are 53 temporary accommodation centers for citizens. Their residents are provided with food, caring for the heads of districts and the migration service, assured Maxim Beloborodov, head of the Federal Migration Service of the Territory. As a rule, citizens arrived purposefully, therefore problems with their registration did not arise.
The participants assured that even today agricultural enterprises and plants, especially in the outback, are ready to offer vacancies to migrants. Mostly workers are required - accountants and lawyers have enough of their own.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainians who arrived from the points will not be forcibly evicted, Yevgeny Malyshev, the acting head of the Primorye civil protection department, assured the regional budget, the costs of placing them under the treaties.
“Naturally, the contract has a tendency to end. The issue of the timing of evictions and employment is still under construction. Job fairs are regularly held at which Ukrainian citizens are offered jobs and areas for permanent residence. Of course, the TAP cannot exist forever, ”noted Evgeny Malyshev.
He added that without the “right to choose”, people living in TAPs in Russian will not be evicted. The acting head of the civil defense department also commented on the incident with migrants from Mikhaylovka, one of whom, Elena, told VL.ru that they were being evicted from the TAP at a local school (details ...) to prepare it for the upcoming governor’s election: “The curator of the TAC could offer she has to move to another room for the time of the elections - no more than that. We repeatedly talked with Mikhail Chapter on this topic. ”

Ukrainian refugees in Primorye: "We are returning to the Luhansk region, it is impossible to live here."
Forced migrants from Ukraine leave Primorye. The conditions provided by the regional and federal authorities do not suit the Ukrainians: not all find work, with housing even worse. VL.ru keeps in touch with Elena - she and her family came to the edge of August 27.
Savchenko's family was first identified in Mikhaylovka, in the TAC. From there they began to drive out, less than a week, referred to the gubernatorial elections. The family quickly found a job - at first they were told that they would take them to Milogradovo (Olginsky district) on a farm where English cows are raised. And they identified the family in Deciduous - about five kilometers from Milogradovo. Elena told about how they live and their future plans by contacting VL.ru correspondents by telephone.
Interview in the article. Already 11 people, according to the Department of the Federal Migration Service, left the temporary accommodation centers of Primorye. In total, 2385 Ukrainians arrived in our region from the beginning of the year, and left the region 2440. More often people from TACs leave at their own expense. According to the law, they explained to us in the migration service, they have the opportunity to travel once at the expense of the state - after receiving the status of forced migrants. Usually they use this opportunity to get to the TAC.
So did the Savchenko family. According to Elena, they have no money for the way back - even in Ukraine, the bank has blocked all funds on the card. She asks all concerned to respond and help a family of four to get home. Elena Savchenko's contact phone number is in the VL.ru edition.

September 27 will be a month since the day when several hundred people arrived in Primorye from the south-east of Ukraine. From tomorrow they will no longer be fed. No money, not all found work. People who stayed at the temporary accommodation center in the village of Mikhailovka contacted VL.ru correspondent.
The Savchenko family, which from the Mikhailovsky TAP, arrived in Foliar (Olginsky District), soon leaves for their homeland. With life in Primorye, they did not work out. The promised "golden mountains" turned out to be a damp house with a clogged toilet and work in a distant village, where there are no schools or hospitals and it is not known for sure what the salary is (details ...).
Not indifferent readers of VL.ru helped a family of four with tickets to the Rostov region - from there across the border to the Luhansk region, to Sverdlovsk. The whole family moved back to Mikhaylovka and is now engaged in paperwork, gets their passports, which they have passed to the FMS.

In the village of Mikhailovka, Ukrainian refugees fought over money.
On Sunday evening, 28 September, a conflict on financial grounds occurred at the temporary accommodation center in the village of Mikhaylovka. Forced migrants from Ukraine fought, the police arrived at the scene, which immediately took the position of one of the parties. About what happened, we were told by one of the participants in the incident.
After VL.ru published material on the plight of Ukrainian refugees in Primorye, lack of hygiene products and warm clothes (details ...), caring readers began to call and come to them - to offer things and bring money. Actually, because of the money, everything started. At 22.00, our correspondent was called by an agitated Elena Savchenko and said that the police would not let her and her son out of the TAC, although they had to go to Vladivostok that evening and from there by train to the house.
Now four families live in the TAC, 11 people - six adults, five children. Children from two to five years. The youngest 11 months. Tickets are not required for them, only for adults. While the documents are in the FMS, but people are ready to leave as soon as they return the passports. And return them when there will be money for tickets.
“People helped us, carried warm clothes, diapers, children's things. Elena took much with her: “You are adults,” she said, “survive yourself. I will not leave you anything.” But we do not need anything anymore. If only I could go home. It’s quiet there, they don’t shoot, kindergartens are opening, people are returning, says our interlocutor. - I arrived with godfathers - they have two small children. When we went to the refugee camp, we were told that there were places in Khabarovsk or Vladivostok. They promised that they would bring us to the city, that there was a sea, fleet, mines ... We did not know that we would get to Mikhaylovka, that there was no work in the region, there was no housing, and the mines for which our husbands had arranged were not mines. such Already half of those who got there, quit.

Ukrainian refugees ask VL.ru readers to help them return home from Mikhailovka
Forced migrants from the south-east of Ukraine want to leave the village of Mikhailovka. Svetlana was in Mikhailovka with her mother and five-year-old son Nikita. There is no money for the return journey, but it’s impossible to find housing and get a job in Primorye.
Now the family lives in the TAC - they are the last who could not find a job and have not left yet. In the gymnasium where the Ukrainians lived, it was now cold, and they were moved to the second floor in a smaller office. Meals at a local cafe are no longer paid, but they give “daily allowances” - Svetlana says that it’s even better: you can buy sweets or cookies for your child.
Others have already left, many even in a compartment. People helped. We do not need a coupe - we just want to go home. In Rostov-on-Don, they promise to meet us, and the bus goes again, and there you are within reach ... ”

Refugees from Ukraine in the Chernihiv region threaten to be evicted from the TAC in the taiga 1 January
46 immigrants from the south-east of Ukraine risk starting a new year on the street, without food, work, money and documents. Now, in the temporary accommodation center in the village of Mushroom of the Chernigov region, there is simply nothing to feed the people. And on Thursday, January 1, representatives of the district administration promise to expel everyone into the street, despite the lack of money and documents.
Sanatorium "Spring" is located in the taiga, 15 kilometers from Chernigovka, in the tiny, courtyards on 15, the village of Mushroom. There is no housing, work and what is called “infrastructure”, but sometimes a bear cub comes in, and it is freezing outside in minus 35-40 degrees. There is not even a shop where you could buy food.
On August 28, people of different professions got into it: miners, financiers, salesmen, there is even a former bank director. Total 46 people, 16 of them - children up to 16 years. The youngest child is two months old.
"Work? We would be happy! Yes, with the inquiries, no one takes us to work. So they say: this is not a document. Several people got a job without documents - but they were not paid. In the cafe, people worked, on the basis of "Diamond Coast" - for the month they promised each of 40 thousands, did not give anything. But there we were advised by people from the district administration to get settled!
We have no money, no documents. We were immediately warned when we were brought here: there is no housing in the village. Rent an apartment in Chernigovka - about 15 thousand rubles per month. There is also a dormitory for three thousand rubles, with a common shower, it is impossible even to wash it there. But we don’t have this money either. ”

Ukrainians from the TAC in the village of Mushroom starving.
VL.ru is keeping under control the situation of the internally displaced persons from the south-east of Ukraine, who remained in the village of Mushroom in the Chernihiv region of Primorye without food or money. 1 January they were promised to be evicted from the TAC in the taiga. Not yet evicted, but the promised money for food is not listed.
28 people from Donetsk and Lugansk regions live in the sanatorium "Spring", which 46 of August became a temporary accommodation point, 16 of them are children up to 16 years (details ...). At first, there were about twice as many immigrants in the TAC, but many of them had left. Those who stayed say that they are not hired by their temporary asylum certificates.
“Some of us have the documents - temporary residence permit - done before. They left the TAC, got a job and live. We do not, although for half a year they have already promised to issue passports. Now we have certificates in which it is written by hand that they have been extended for a year. Maybe, according to the law, we are obliged to hire us to work with them, but they all say in one voice that this is not a document. On November 10 we were promised to give testimonies to the participants in the State Program for the resettlement of compatriots - we take part in it, and in another ten days to issue a “lift”. But there was no evidence. We do not want to leave, on the contrary - we want to get Russian passports. We were told that they would be made in half a year, but now it’s obvious that by February 28 we will not have them. Those who tried to get settled illegally, without documents, were deceived - they did not pay money, ”said Oksana, a resident of the temporary accommodation center.
Total. Historically, in the Primorsky Territory, the ancestors of the majority of the modern population are migrants from the territory of Ukraine:
During 1858 — 1914, 22 122 peasant families moved in Primorye, 70% of which came from Ukraine, while their share in the South Ussuri region was 81,26% of all peasant migrants.
Therefore, it is not surprising that the majority of modern migrants easily settled in a new place.
Those who could not get settled, either didn’t try very hard or were unlucky. Although the fault of the officials in this too.
I believe that if the Berkutov people came to Primorsky Krai, they, of course, would have settled down and found work and housing, but not as well as in the western part of the country. That confirms the constant outflow of the population from the Primorsky Territory to the western parts of the country or in general to other countries. Personally, I have many acquaintances who have gone to the west, to Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Yes, we have a difficult climate, which the inhabitants of even the colder northern regions swear. Yes, in comparison with Moscow salaries we have 1,5-2 times less (15-25 thousand rubles. - average, “normal”, 40-60 thousand rubles. - very good, rarely where it happens), products in 1,5 are more expensive , but the apartments are comparable in value with Moscow. Yes, we have officials - a lot of promise, but little crooks. But even in such conditions, it is easy for us to find a job and survive. If you want.
