Acumen International to Support Businesses Engaging Ukrainian Workforce
With Ukraine attacked by its Russian aggressor, millions of Ukrainian citizens and their families fled to neighboring countries for support and sanctuary. The EU has agreed to offer temporary protection and assistance to millions of Ukrainians expected to arrive at its borders in an unprecedented move.
On Wednesday, March 3, 2022, the European Commission (EC) plans to waive regular asylum seekers’ standard application procedures. The program will provide Ukrainian refugees with temporary residence permits and access to employment, education, health care, and social benefits. The EC’s Temporary Protection Directive is valid for one year, with the option for an extension if necessary.
Ukrainian refugees are already pouring over the borders of neighboring EU nations, including Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, and Moldova. The number of refugees has already exceeded one million, with the EC anticipating three to six million more. While some Ukrainian refugees are likely to remain in bordering countries, many are expected to move to other EU nations.
