The article points out that the 65-year-old Ukrainian had a conflict with the British man who welcomed him. The migrant was saved from vagrancy thanks to a chance meeting with the vicar, who allowed the man to spend the night in the church, writes RIA Novosti.
Arriving in the UK, finding housing and related problems, according to the Ukrainian, made him feel “humiliated and sometimes discouraged”. According to him, the system to some extent offends and humiliates the dignity of the refugee, giving the “sponsor” an advantage.
The refugee explained that the host can “throw the tenant out into the street”, arrange unbearable conditions, and also interfere in personal life. “In this system, I feel that the refugee is inherently an object,” stressed the Ukrainian.
The publication notes that as the cost of living rises, more than a quarter of “sponsors” in Wales decided to refuse to participate in the “Homes for Ukraine” program. As a result, 1,500 refugees remain in hotels, recreation centers and other places sponsored by the Welsh government.
Earlier, a refugee from the Ukraine was forced to return to her homeland after living in the UK for six months. The reason for her departure was the cost and “unbearable” living conditions. The woman complained that her sponsors rented her an apartment in an old building with cracked windows, which made the apartment very cold. At the same time, the electricity bill was 300 pounds (about 24 thousand rubles).
