“Because of logistics, this doesn’t affect Russia,” Romodanovsky told journalists.
According to Romondanovsky, the migration flow of refugees from Syria heads to Turkey, Macedonia, and Hungary, as well as another flow into Italy.
“There is a buffer zone made up of a number of countries that creates a safety cushion for us,” Romondanovsky added.
Russia is ready to consider applications from Syrian asylum seekers and to help them, the migration official stated.
Lately, the number of refugees fleeing violence in the Middle East, primarily from Syria, have been pouring into European countries in record numbers.
According to UN estimates, over four million Syrians have fled the country as a result of the four-year-long civil war between the government and opposition forces, further complicated by numerous extremist insurgent groups, including Islamic State and Nusra Front militants, active in the country. The European Commission has termed it the largest humanitarian crisis since World War II.
