It’s a current estimate; every day, we have new arrivals,” she said in an interview with French broadcaster France info Tuesday.

She also announced a “refugee sponsorship system” via a new platform. The site parrainage.refugies.info will allow French households to host a Ukrainian family with the support of nongovernmental organizations.
