Switzerland to tighten social assistance rules for Ukrainians

Switzerland has tightened rules for granting social assistance to refugees from Ukraine, the Swiss broadcaster SRF has reported.

The Swiss authorities have announced that now, as in the case of refugees from other countries, when considering applications from Ukrainian citizens for social assistance, the financial situation of the applicant will be taken into account.

It is noted that previously, even wealthy Ukrainians could receive help from the state. Under the new rules, withdrawals from bank accounts or other assets will count towards the nominal income of refugees, which will affect the decision to provide assistance.

To date, more than 60,000 Ukrainians have arrived in Switzerland and been granted protection status.
