Fewer reports, fewer blue and yellow flags, fewer appeals for donations: in recent months we have heard and read less about the people fleeing the war in Ukraine to Berlin. While up to 10,000 refugees arrived at the main train station every day in the spring, the Welcome Hall tent is now being dismantled to make way for smaller containers.
Is the topic of Ukraine refugees in Berlin out of breath, or do we need to take a deep breath right now before the next thousand refugees come to us? Ann-Kathrin Hipp and Lorenz Maroldt talk to their Ukrainian colleagues in Berlin, who are now reporting from here about their homeland and the war and are trying to establish a second art at home.
Ukrainian journalist Valeriia Semeniuk does not regret her decision to leave Ukraine: “I understand that I am definitely not a hero, unlike my colleagues. But I made this decision mainly because of my children. I had to save her. I have to stay here now.”

Among other things, Social Senator Katja Kipping (left) explains which measures are now urgently needed. Assessments of the situation also by Christian Lüder, founder of the network “Berlin Helps” and Irina Gutt from the psychological consultation for Czech refugees at Vivantes.
