Riots in Ukraine

The riots in Ukraine were reported on the Today programme this morning (it was the lead item after 8 o'clock).

One of the protestors (rebels?  trouble-makers?) said:  "...there is nothing for us to lose, there is nowhere for us to go".

Can we be quite clear on the second part of that phrase "nowhere for us to go".

Because what usually happens when a country dissolves into rioting and violence is a wave of refugees starts clamouring to go to "the west" and the pro-immigrant lobby starts agitating for them to be given access to the United Kingdom.

Ukrainians, there is NOWHERE FOR YOU TO GO.

If you mess up your country through social breakdown and communal violence you must live with the consequences.

You are not welcome here.
