Funeral Repatriation from Spain

The first group of Ukrainians arrived in Spain at the end of 1946 from the displaced persons camp in Rimini (Italy). An important factor that contributed to the Ukrainian migration was the Spanish mentality, close to the Ukrainian one, the absence of xenophobia, the hospitality, benevolence of the Spaniards and their respectful attitude towards the Ukrainians. But it often happens that even living abroad on a permanent residence, the person himself wants to be buried in the Motherland, so in the event of death a citizen of Ukraine on the territory of Spain, the following actions must be taken.
