A hostel for Ukrainian refugees burned down in Germany. Police report arson

On Wednesday evening, October 19, in the German municipality of Gross-Stremkendorf, a fire broke out in a hostel for refugees from Ukraine.

Spiegel reports.

“Based on my many years of experience as a firefighter, I currently assume that the fire was started deliberately,” said local government spokesman Tino Schomann.

Law enforcement officers also said that earlier on the same day, unknown people drew a swastika on a sign in front of the building.

At the same time, local authorities note that residents of the municipality have “very good relations” with Ukrainian refugees.

At this time, all the guests of the burnt hostel were relocated to another place.
