Moscow, February 25 – UK Secretary of Energy Security and Climate Neutral Grant Shapps sheltered a Ukrainian refugee at home, who left her husband at home, they said in an interview with Sky News.
The British minister, who lives with his wife and children, took in Ukrainian refugee Snezhana Chaykina, her mother, her seven-year-old son Nikita and their dog. According to Shapps, they all live happily in his house and expect to stay there for the coming months. Arriving in April last year, the refugees settled in the room of the eldest son of Shapps.
Refugee Snezhana Chekina said she works remotely and is constantly in touch with her Ukrainian colleagues. Her husband, who was dismissed from the service on medical grounds due to a leg injury, recently traveled to Poland and hopes to reunite with his family in the UK. She said she and Shapps had “a lot in common” but did not discuss British politics, except for the situation in Ukraine.
In March last year, the UK authorities launched the Homes for Ukraine program, which allows individuals, charities, community groups and companies to provide refugees with temporary and free housing, for which the British received compensation.
