At first, Joe and Irina Place lived in Sheffield with relatives and friends. They planned to stay, but faced “terrible” living conditions, high rents and eventually moved to Uzhgorod.

After a rent increase by British employers, the family of a Ukrainian woman and a Briton who lived in Ukraine before the war returned home despite ongoing hostilities. It is reported by Sky News.

Native of Sheffield, 29-year-old Joe Place and his wife, 34-year-old wife Irina, left their home in Kyiv in February and moved to the British Isles.

Due to the fact that Miss Place, being a citizen of Ukraine, came to the UK on a visa for family reunification (Ukraine Family Scheme) and the fact that she had a job in the UK, he could not apply for participation in the project “Houses for Ukraine ” (Homes for Ukraine).

At first they stayed with relatives and friends and planned to stay in the city of Sheffield or Nottingham, but faced “terrible” living conditions, high rents and demands.

For seven months, the family tried to find permanent housing and eventually returned to Ukraine in September.

Now they settled in Uzhgorod, despite power and heating outages and the potential threat of Russian missile strikes.

“It all boils down to the fact that almost everyone in the UK seems to be busy looking for housing,” explained Joe Place. “We tried to combine our budgets and moreover… our list of requirements was very limited, I had to deny myself a lot, to make compromises. Everything we found even remotely close was terrible.”
