A total of 1,962 war refugees from Ukraine arrived in Estonia the week of July 25-31, among them 373 children, the Police and Border Guard Board (PPA) reported on Monday. To date, Estonia has received 48,772 refugees from Ukraine.
Of the 1,962 refugees to arrive in Estonia last week, 927 were considered to be in transit, i.e. do not wish to remain in Estonia, the PPA reported (link in Estonian).
Since February 27, Estonia has received 48,772 war refugees from Ukraine. This total does not reflect arriving refugees who have been in transit through Estonia.
The state has also already registered 31,512 applications for temporary protection.
As of May 30, the PPA has published weekly, not daily, statistics online regarding the arrival of war refugees from Ukraine in Estonia.
