British Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned Russian President Vladimir Putin against invading Ukraine.
Milton Keynes – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson issued an urgent warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin against invading Ukraine. “We have to make it very clear to the Kremlin, Russia, that it would be a disastrous move,” Johnson said in Milton Keynes on Monday. From a Russian perspective, too, this would be a “painful, violent and bloody affair,” the prime minister warned. He announced that he would speak to international partners. London, like the US, had previously withdrawn workers from its embassy in Kiev. They are also in the process of preparing economic sanctions.
With a massive Russian troop build-up near the border with Ukraine, there are fears in the West that the Kremlin may be planning an invasion of the neighboring country. Moscow rejects this and demands security guarantees from the USA and NATO. (dpa)
