Charities insist Britain government to welcome people fleeing from Ukraine


Charities have insisted the Britain government to welcome refugees fleeing from the conflicts in Ukraine. The US has said that the war could displace five million people.

Various charities like Amnesty International, Save the Children, and the Refugee Council asked the Britain government to cooperate with people and handle a sudden increase in the number of refugees.


IN RESPONSE, the UK government said its priority is to support people fleeing from Ukraine and British nationals. A calculated 100,000 Ukrainians have already been internally displaced after running from their homes to escape the attack. At the same time, videos on social media show lines of cars heading west into neighbouring Moldova, Poland, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia.

The United Nations has also appealed to adjoining countries to keep their borders open to people seeking safety. The letter from many charities instructed the government to execute a “well-resourced initiative working with councils across the country” to support people of Ukraine searching for shelter.

The PM has announced that the Britain has 1,000 military troops on standby to support a humanitarian crisis in Europe if they need to be called upon.

On Thursday, the Home Office confirmed that study, work, or visit visas would be temporarily expanded for some Ukrainians in the UK. They will be able to apply for family visas or points-based immigration without leaving the country. This would give them a little more time to find a job and stay in the UK for much longer. Those already on the point-based system will last a little longer, and seasonal agrarian workers will have their visas automatically extended until the end of the year.

Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, has gone dark and very quiet late Thursday night. Amid the chaos, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said 137 people had been killed, and over 300 have been injured in the Russian invasion so far.
