Government ministers to organise Ireland’s humanitarian response

A group of government ministers will meet today to organise a humanitarian response to the war in Ukraine.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin says there will be a ‘major humanitarian response’ from the state.

He says they will firm up details of how many refugees Ireland will take in and how they will be housed.

“Everything depends on the scale of what happens, so far we haven’t seen huge numbers coming in yet, but everything depends on the numbers coming in in terms of the response.

“There are families here already, Ukrainian families, there are families who want to help, but predominantly the state will have to work to secure accommodation and structure it as best we can.”
