ZAGREB, 26 Feb 2022 - Croatia can provide for 3,500 persons from Ukraine at the moment and plans are being made so that up to 17,000 can be accommodated, Davor Spevec of the Civil Protection Directorate said in Slavonski Brod on Saturday.

The first six persons from Ukraine arrived in Croatia yesterday and they did not need the assistance of public services as they had private accommodation, he said.

"We have plans and places. They are hotels, hostels, dormitories... throughout Croatia," Spevec said, adding that if necessary bigger accommodation capacity will be provided.

He was in Slavonski Brod to attend a ceremony marking European 112 Day, International Civil Protection Day and Croatian Civil Protection Day.
