It is a terrifying moment for people across the world!

My wife (who was born in Ukraine with immediate family there), and I, are extremely shocked, saddened and worried about the devastating situation of Russia invading Ukraine. Innocent lives have already been lost - many more will no doubt die and the situation is escalating quickly. Cyber attacks are stopping people getting access to money, electricity is being cut, and deadly weapons are being used. It is a terrible situation.

This is a petition to help all those Ukrainian people in the UK, (who are either now British citizens or UK residents, and whom will have worked hard and brought value to the country), to get the British government to grant an emergency VISA allowing their immediate family to enter the UK.

Furthermore, it saddens me to the core that as it stands, nothing of any impact is being done by the UK government to stop this unprovoked attack on Ukraine. People in Ukraine are stuck, surrounded by an imminent threat of attack from all directions, with no commercial flights available to leave. It is a very scary situation.

My wife moved to England 20 years ago and has brought so much value to the UK, having worked very hard and now currently works for a reputable London based IT company. Yet all we can do is wait and watch with great anxiety about what will happen next whilst her immediate family pray and hope to survive. Rumour has it her home town, where her immediate family live, is said to be attacked TONIGHT! 

As it stands, people in Ukraine are able to enter into Poland and this petition, if approved would allow family members of British citizens to reach safety, and reach their family, by granting them access to the UK from Poland or any other country they are able to flee to.

Sanctions already made are clearly not enough and if we sit back and do nothing innocent people will DIE!
