Berlin recorded more crimes against Ukrainians than against other groups during the year.

In Berlin, 3,250 crimes against Ukrainians were recorded from the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine until March 2023. At the same time, there have been 2.5 times as many assaults with bodily injuries as against other foreigners. This is reported by the Alliance of Ukrainian Organisations in Germany.

Most of such incidents are registered in the districts of Mitte (640) and Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf (484).

The perpetrators were only identified in 1,200 of the 3,250 recorded attacks. Most were bodily injuries (575), threats (187) and insults (86). Only just over 20 cases went to court.

The police have not provided information as to whether the attacks are politically motivated, although according to our information they may have this information. We do not know this, but there are reasons to believe that these are hate crimes," the Alliance of Ukrainian Organizations said.

The Alliance of Ukrainian Organisations said it would continue to put pressure on political institutions in Berlin and Germany to ensure greater security for Ukrainians.

According to the UN, there are almost 900,000 Ukrainian refugees in Germany.
