We need to check people’s motivations for coming to UK – Johnson





Back to the issue of visas for Ukrainians wanting to flee to the UK, and Boris Johnson has been explaining why he is insisting on checks on people entering the country.

Some of those coming to the UK may still be armed, he said, and “perhaps not all of their identities are completely clear, their motivations completely clear.”

He said more than 1,000 visas had been issued, and the number would climb “very steeply”.

Johnson also warned that British military personnel going AWOL to fight in Ukraine would face a court martial.

He said many in the armed forces would sympathise with the “clear distinction” between “good and evil” in the situation in Ukraine, but there were clear laws in the UK.
