Prague centre for Ukrainian refugees closed down

The Prague centre for Ukrainian refugees in Vysočany closed down on midnight Wednesday. An information service remains on the site to inform refugees where they can seek help.

According to Prague Mayor, Zdeněk Hřib, the centre was closed due to overburdening of the capital and the lack of a system of relocation to other less crowded regions.

The facility will remain closed until the government introduces a system of redistribution for refugees so that the burden can be balanced out more evenly between the various regions.
