Moscow : Russia Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said Thursday that the country has received around 4,000 Ukrainian refugees.
"People are frightened, scared. At the same time, the Ukrainian government fails to notice a humanitarian problem, says there are no refugees. It's lies and it's sad to hear it," Xinhua quoted Medvedev as saying.
Ukraine's State Border Service published a statement Thursday, claiming that no citizen of Ukraine has expressed a desire to
refugee status in Russia on the border of the two countries, the Ukrainian News Agency reported Thursday.
