“I ran away from Ukraine with my two daughters. Please give me the item. “The reporter reader received such a request in flawless German from a person who was pretending to be a Ukrainian refugee to receive free articles for sale on Tutti or Facebook. According to the restaurateur, something similar is also happening in cafes, bars and restaurants. : People pretend to be Ukrainian refugees and demand free food and drink.
But it is not always possible to verify the origin of the alleged Ukrainians. The restaurateur is therefore concerned that these may be false passports or fabricated stories.
Since the beginning of the war in February, about 6.9 million people have fled Ukraine and found refuge in many European countries. The fact that Ukrainians are welcomed with open arms and received support in many places causes resentment among, among others, refugees from other countries. Outsiders are now trying to take advantage of the situation.
