UK to shelter Ukrainian refugees under new plan


Amid the intense Russia-Ukraine war, the people of the United Kingdom will offer housing to refugees from Ukraine who are escaping Russia’s invasion, under new plans to be published next week.

On Monday, the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, Michael Gove, will lay out the specifics of a new ‘sponsored’ humanitarian route that will enable Ukrainians without family ties to the UK to come into the nation.


Further, ministers will develop a hotline and website where people, charities, companies, and community organisations can provide lodgings to anyone fleeing the crisis.

Ukrainian Refugees who will arrive through the “new route” will be permitted to stay in the nation for a year.

Moreover, authorities will connect the refugees with proposals of free lodging from sponsored individuals and organisations, thoroughly verified to ensure that they are safe and secure.

According to the Telegraph, the UK public who will provide homes must commit to accommodating the migrants for at least six months and ensure that they satisfy sufficient criteria.

According to a government official, the details of the program are being worked on at a rapid speed.

“The routes we have put in place follow extensive engagement with Ukrainian partners. This is a rapidly moving and complex picture, and as the situation develops, we will continue to keep our support under constant review,” citing the official, Metro reported.


This came after Home Secretary Priti Patel stated that the UK would relax its strict entrance procedures for Ukrainian refugees, allowing those with passports to register for immigration online and providing biometric information only after they reach the country.

Meanwhile, according to a United Nations official, over 2.3 million individuals have fled the conflict in Ukraine, with another 1.9 million displaced within the war-torn nation.
