Less than expected Ukrainian refugees have arrived in Norway. As a result, the Norwegian Immigration Service (UDI) is currently reducing its reception capacity, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) writes.
According to UDI Director Frode Forfang, many refugees also chose to settle personally without going through the UDI reception device.
Last week there were nearly 500 new asylum applications.
UDI began providing an overview of Norwegian Ukrainian asylum seekers on February 25. Since then, more than 18,000 applications have been accepted.
Almost all municipalities have agreed to accept refugees, according to Libe Rieber-Mohn, director of the Department of Integration and Diversity (Imdi).
