UK: The “Homes for Ukraine” scheme will be unveiled by Communities Secretary Michael Gove today (Sunday) in a bid to help the thousands of families fleeing Putin’s attack on their country. A website for sponsors to register will go online tomorrow, allowing them to provide homes and rooms for victims of Russian terror.

Gove said: “The crisis in Ukraine has sent shock waves across the world as hundreds of thousands of innocent people have been forced to flee their homes, leaving everything they know and love behind.

“The UK stands behind Ukraine in their darkest hour and the British public understand the need to get as many people to safety as quickly as we can.

“I urge people across the country to join the national effort and offer support to our Ukrainian friends. Together we can give a safe home to those who so desperately need it.”

It comes as criticism of the Government continues to grow over the failure to provide enough support for Ukrainian refugees. While Boris Johnson has been highly praised for his leadership in bringing Europe, the G7 and NATO together in imposing sanctions on Russia and providing food, medical and military aid to Ukraine there have been concerns over the slow response to help refugees.

A poll in the Ukraine put Mr Johnson as the most popular western leader but a UK poll by Opinium showed that 52 percent do not think enough has been done to provide safe places to stay for those fleeing war.

As well as providing air defence and other hitech weapons and specialist military training, the UK Government has also pumped hundreds of millions into the Ukrainian economy.
