More than 10,000 Ukrainian refugees will be forced to leave Great Britain after their visas expire. This reports Daily Mail.
So, Robert Buckland, former Minister of Justice under Prime Minister Boris Johnson, called on ministers to consider granting Ukrainians a more permanent status.
He expressed the desire that the preparation of such a decision be carried out in 2023 and ensure as much “stability and confidence” as possible; for refugees, their employers and the communities in which they live.
In addition, Conservative MP Bob Seeley, co-chair of the all-party parliamentary group on Ukraine, praised the government for supporting Ukrainian families, but also stressed the need to " important” clarity.
"Because some have children in school, we have to let them plan", – he emphasized.
It should be noted that the Homes for Ukraine and Ukraine Family Scheme programs were introduced so that Ukrainian refugees could get to Britain as a result of the Russian invasion. Each of the programs provides the opportunity to stay for up to three years.
As you know, Canada announced a new immigration program for immigrants from Ukraine, which will enable the reunification of families separated between the two countries.
