Germany is to include Ukraine into the list of 14 safe countries of origin, including Ukraine, as Deutsche Welle reported referring to dpa.

The migrants from the safe countries of origin are easier to be expelled from Germany if the state refuses to provide asylum as their application for asylum is being considered under an accelerated procedure.

In July, the following countries were included into the list – Tunis, Algeria, Morocco, and Georgia. And now, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Cuba, Columbia, Vietnam, Pakistan, India, Kenia, Benin, Guinea Bissau, Central African Republic, and Chad are to join the list.

Such decision is related to the fact that in 2018, the part of the positive decisions on the asylum applications of the citizens of these particular states is less than 5%.

The final decision depends on the meeting of other criteria and the requirements of the European Union and the conclusion of Germany’s Federal Constitutional Court. Besides, the Government of Germany has to conduct a detailed analysis of the threat of tortures, inhuman treatment and armed conflict.
