Changes to UK visa rules for Ukrainians called ‘shameful’ by Labour
The Guardian says Boris Johnson has faced criticism after much-anticipated changes to visa rules for Ukrainians hoping to seek refuge in the UK from the war turned out to be minimal.
The shadow home secretary, Yvette Cooper, said that the government’s record was “shameful” and that, despite claims that Ukrainians who were close relatives of British nationals would be able to benefit, in practice even brothers or sisters might not.
Downing Street first announced the change on Sunday evening, after coming under pressure for days from campaigners and opposition parties angered by the failure of the Home Office to announce a wide-ranging visa waiver for Ukrainians seeking sanctuary.
