(ANSA) – TRIESTE, 09 MAR – “It is important to have moments of encounter, to find solutions to problems and the solution is not war but to return to dialogue and build paths of peace. This is what our ancestors and that we continue to do by opening ourselves to a changing world but which needs peacemakers, helping people in times of difficulty “. Anna Micelli, mayor of a tiny town in a Friulian valley, Resia, where a Russian-speaking dialect is spoken, twinned with a town not far from Moscow, Fryazino, is convinced of this, and yet Ukrainian refugees are also welcomed.
For the moment, three refugees from war zones have arrived, people linked to a Ukrainian citizen who already works in Resia. And the number could increase as local authorities have planned to be able to accommodate up to a dozen people.
“It would be nice if a family with children arrived, so the number of children increases”, says a passerby, recalling that between kindergartens, elementary and middle schools, 53 children study in the municipality, which overall has less than a thousand inhabitants.
