Priti Patel has claimed the UK will take in 100,000 Ukrainian refugees fleeing the Russian invasion.
But the Home Secretary has ruled out a visa waiver for Ukrainians fleeing the conflict, fearing troops and extremists in Moscow are trying to come to the UK.
She said: ‘Through this extension alone I can confirm that an additional 100,000 Ukrainians will be able to seek sanctuary in the UK, with access to work and public services.
‘We are enabling Ukrainian nationals already in the UK, giving them the ability to switch free of charge into a points-based immigration route or through the family visa route.
It’s not yet known how many refugees Ireland will take in.
