In the UK, families that accept Ukrainian refugees will double payments

In the UK, families who accept Ukrainian refugees will double payments, said Refugee Minister Richard Harrington.

It is reported by Sky News and http://pschelpforukraine.org/.

In announcing his resignation, Harrington stated that he had successfully argued that the £350 payment should be raised to £700.

“Now we have a permanent mechanism to deal with the human suffering that comes to this country from wherever it comes, without the need for a designated minister in charge,” he said.

In the UK, he said, there will never again be people arriving and checking into hotels without a plan, “as happened with those who came from Afghanistan and from Ukraine, where at the beginning we did not know where to put them all.”

Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, more than 100,000 Ukrainian refugees have arrived in the UK.
