Reports say that Gabriela Bravo, Minister of Justice, made the announcement to open the offices, including sites in Orihuela and Torrevieja.

Ukrainians form a significant part of the population in both cities, and more of their compatriots are expected to join them in the following weeks and months.

Bravo explained that the offices “will be run by lawyers to manage the processing of all the resources they need, such as the health card, which will be provided for provisional residence or for the exercise of any other right.”

Also, she announced that a 112 Ukraine telephone number will be activated so that anyone can receive “immediate information about the resources that the Generalitat makes available to them, health needs, accommodation or relatives”.

These special lines will be answered in Ukrainian and Russian to facilitate the service.
