Ex-military unit in Vama Veche could shelter a centre for refugees

About 500 refugees are to be accommodated in a former military unit on the Romanian seashore of the Black Sea at Vama Veche, Constanța county, according to stirileprotv.

The source says that authorities have not confirmed the fact yet but facility works are underway.

At Vama Veche, less than 20 metres away from the border with Bulgaria, several worker teams started to restore a former military unit, with ProTV claiming that it will host some hundreds of Syrian citizens who will come to Romania following the migrant quota assigned to our country.

The Coast Guard  sent a request to all local authorities in southern Romania some time ago, asking for information about more buildings that could be turned into refugee centres. Although nothing official has been gone public so far, the Coast Guard admitted that the former military unit is being restored and cleaned.

Locals are not happy with this idea.

We don’t know what kind of people they are. If there were only women and children, it would be ok. The mayor or the deputy mayor don’t agree either,” a local told ProTV journalists.

What will they do here? Aren’t we poor enough? now we bring them here,” another man added.

Vama Veche, a small village located a few kilometers South from 2 Mai resort, near the border with Bulgaria, has become a very popular summer destination in recent years, due to the nonconformist atmosphere and good prices for accommodation and meals.
