Female Ukrainian war refugees at the Galaxen Refugee Center in Olofström have been ordered to cease wearing short skirts and revealing clothing. The same center is also housing male non-European economic migrants. Swedish authorities say the men will be provoked by skimpy attire.
Gitana Bengtsson, who works at center, confirmed that Ukrainian women were given a dress code. She she says she opposes this. Annika Sjöstedt, a member of the Social Democrats and deputy chairman of the local municipal board, says the dress code stems from Ukrainian women wearing bikinis to the dining hall.
Galaxen is a resort-like complex on Lake Slagesnäs in a rural area. Ironically, there is a nudist camp right down the street.
Last March, a Ukrainian teenage girl was allegedly gang raped by men from Iraq and Nigeria in Düsseldorf, Germany. The woman was supposed to be in a safe place. However, Iraqis and Nigerians were apparently allowed to enter the facility by falsely claiming to be Ukrainian.
