'Barbaric:' Missile strike in Poland dominates meeting between Biden and UK Prime Minister Sunak
President Joe Biden and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak held their first one-on-one meeting with Russia, Ukraine and Poland high on the agenda.The missiles reportedly struck a Polish grain facility near the border of Ukraine on Tuesday. It wasn't immediately clear whether they accidentally strayed into Poland or whether Poland was deliberated targeted. Regardless, the strikes threatened to escalate Russia's nine-month war in Ukraine as Poland is a member of NATO.
Because of the high number of war refugees from Ukraine, more people have immigrated to Great Britain than ever since the Second World War.
the bottom line was that a good 500,000 more people moved to the United Kingdom in the twelve months to June, as the British Statistics Office announced ONS. The approximately 35,000 migrants who came to Great Britain illegally via the English Channel are not included. Overall, the United Kingdom has a good 67 million inhabitants. In addition to around 89,000 people from Ukraine, 76,000 people from the former Hong Kong crown colony, for whom the British government has launched a special visa program due to the repressive policy of Chinese leadership, and 21,000 refugees from Afghanistan. In addition, numerous international students returned after the end of the strict Corona rules. In the comparison period until June 2021, the net immigration was 173,000 people.
Most of the newcomers came from non-EU countries. On the other hand, many EU citizens continue to leave Great Britain because of the Brexit. An estimated 51,000 people from the EU lived less in the country. The conservative government had promised to significantly reduce immigration after Brexit.
