The Regional Secretary for Inclusion and Citizenship, Rita Andrade, admits that the integration of Ukrainians into the local labour market is not as easy, as expected.
Those who were living in Madeira when the war broke out, she said, already speak the language, however, those who came later, do not, and this is where the problem lies!
Luckily, many Ukrainians have enrolled, and are now attending Portuguese language classes.
In an article dated the 24th of May this year, the Borders and Frontiers Service (SEF), confirmed that at least 310 Ukrainians who had obtained temporary protection in Portugal due to the war, had returned to their homeland.
