The influx of Ukrainian refugees entering Germany has slowed to about 2,000 people a day.
German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said on May 14 that the number of refugees had dropped from 15,000 a day entering Germany in mid-March, just weeks after Russia began invading Ukraine.
Faeser told the Rheinische Post that most Ukrainian refugees will eventually return to Ukraine.
However, she said that “some will stay if people see opportunities to find space in the German labor market”.
The German newspaper Welt am Sonntag reported on May 14 that more than 700,000 Ukrainian refugees have been registered with the German authorities since Russia began its occupation of Ukraine on February 24.
About 40 percent of Ukrainian refugees are minors and less than 80 percent are women, according to the newspaper, which cited Interior Ministry data.
More than 6 million Ukrainians have fled the country since the war began, the United Nations has said.
