At least 75 Ukrainian asylum seekers spent the night at the train stations in the capital Brussels as the Belgian institution Fedasil, responsible for asylum seekers, could not provide accommodation. Fedasil, who previously left the applications of Syrian and Afghan asylum seekers as well as other foreigners unanswered, announced that the responsibility rests with the provincial administrations after the news on the subject.
Minister of Asylum and Immigration Nicole De Moor said, “Our Fedasil centers have completely filled their capacity. There is no room in Brussels and especially in the Wallonia regions. At the moment, regional governments have committed to creating a place as soon as possible,” he said.
