The influx of Ukrainian refugees entering Germany has slowed to around 2,000 people a day.

German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said on May 14 that the number is down from a high of around 15,000 people a day in mid-March, when Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine was only weeks old.

Faeser was quoted by the Rheinische Post as saying that most of the Ukrainian refugees will eventually return to Ukraine.

However, she said, “some will stay if people see the chance to find their feet in the German labor market with their qualifications.”

Germany’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper reported on May 14, that more than 700,000 Ukrainian refugees have registered with the German authorities since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.

Around 40 percent of the Ukrainian refugees are minors, and just over 80 percent are women, according to the newspaper, which cited Interior Ministry data.

Altogether, more than 6 million Ukrainians have left their home country since the war began, according to the United Nations.
