Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “UK could send Ukrainian refugees to Rwanda”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Ukrainian refugees who arrive in Britain illegally could be deported to Rwanda for processing, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has admitted.

Johnson was asked about the possibility of Ukrainian migrants being sent to the Central African country during his visit to the Rwandan capital Kigali on Thursday.

“The only circumstances in which people will be sent to Rwanda would be if they come to the UK illegally, and thereby undermine the safe and legal routes that we have,” he replied.

The UK has already issued some 130,000 visas to Ukrainian nationals amid the conflict with Russia, and “they have at least two very good routes for coming to [the UK],” the prime minister noted.

“But if you come here illegally, you’re undermining all those who come here legally. And it’s crazy. So I’m afraid the answer is, I suppose, yes, in theory that could happen.”
