How many of the refugees remained in the country — no one knows for sure. Reasons for leaving may be different — the search of a better life or simply could not find a job and housing. Some still come back and face new challenges

And here comes the problem — some families can't go back. It turns out the situation that they have no benefits, because if they are not registered in state Agency of employment, they lose it. And if so families with babies, we place them in "Mucenieki" because they have nowhere to live. Though according to the regulation, after receiving refugee status they have no rights to be there," — says interior Minister Rihards Kozlovskis.
