WASHINGTON (Reuters] – U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration will issue temporary work permits and deportation relief to tens of millions of Ukrainians already living in America but unable or unwilling to return home to Ukraine as a result of military conflict with Russia. This was announced by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Thursday.

DHS stated that Ukrainians who reside in the United States from March 1, will be able to stay and legally work in the United States for 18 months. This comes after Russian forces invade Ukraine in the worst attack on an European state since World War II. DHS stated that the program would allow 75,000 Ukrainians to apply.

Biden insulted Russian President Vladimir Putin. He barred Russian flight from American airspace, Tuesday’s State of the Union address was overshadowed by the Ukraine crisis.

The Temporary Protected Status will grant deportation relief to Ukrainians and allow them access to work permits. It allows people who are not able to leave their country due to extreme circumstances, such as violence or natural disasters to remain and work legally in the United States.

“Russia’s premeditated and unprovoked attack on Ukraine has resulted in an ongoing war, senseless violence, and Ukrainians forced to seek refuge in other countries,” Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a written statement.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said earlier that Thursday it had halted all deportation flights from Ukraine because of the ongoing humanitarian crisis.

Over 1,000,000 Ukrainians have fled to neighboring countries in Central Europe since Russia invaded Ukraine, Feb. 24, 2014. Moscow called it a “special attack.”
