Hungary continues its quest to help every Ukrainian refugee that arrives in the country.
The national police headquarters said 3,222 people crossed into Hungary directly from Ukraine on Sunday, while another 4,256 from Ukraine crossed from Romania. Police issued temporary residence permits valid for 30 days to 553 people. Holders of such permits must contact a local immigration office near their place of residence within 30 days to apply for permanent documents. Budapest police received 531 refugees, 231 children among them, by train. Cooperating authorities have provided transport and accommodation for 19 people, 9 children among them, in and around Budapest. Refugees arriving on special train services at Kőbánya felső railway station, in eastern Budapest, were taken by bus to the BOK sports and events center serving as a humanitarian transit point.
