PM and Prague mayor agree on measures to ease refugee burden on Prague

Prime Minister Petr Fiala and Prague Mayor Zdeněk Hřib have agreed to implement a set of measures to motivate Ukrainian refugees to move from Prague to less burdened regions. A coordination mechanism will also be created to ensure that the actual transfer takes place, Mayor Hřib told reporters after the meeting. The Prague leadership has long complained about overcrowding and this week closed its refugee centre for Ukrainian refugees due to total overload. The capital has processed humanitarian visas for close to 100,000 refugees.
