A Ukrainian-Hungarian bilingual school will open in Hungary with grades between 1 and 11. Furthermore, parents will not have to pay for the education there. Hungary is currently in need of Ukrainian schools since refugees continue to arrive as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues.
According to KárpátHír, the good news was shared by a Ukrainian Greco-Catholic priest serving in Budapest, Damjan Hraborij. He said that the new school’s founder would be the Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Fund in Hungary. They will cooperate with the House of Ukrainian Traditions.
“Hungary is one of those countries that not only understood the importance of opening Ukrainian schools but takes steps to do so” – he said. Mr Hraborij added there is tremendous work ahead of them, but they signed the cooperation agreement. “We go forward with God!“
Fully 5,133 people crossed into Hungary directly from Ukraine on Wednesday, while another 5,322 from Ukraine crossed from Romania, the national police headquarters said.
Police issued temporary residence permits valid for thirty days to 475 people,
the police website said on Wednesday. Holders of such permits must contact a local immigration office near their place of residence within thirty days to apply for permanent documents, it said.
Budapest police received 333 refugees, 147 children among them, by train, according to the municipal police website. Refugees arriving on special train services at Kőbánya felső railway station, in eastern Budapest, were taken by bus to the BOK sports and events centre serving as a humanitarian transit point.
