British Prime Minister Boris Johnson cautioned Sunday that if Russia prospers in its takeover of Ukraine, the worldwide outcomes would be “absolutely catastrophic.”
Russia has actually been continuing its ruthless attacks on Ukraine that began in lateFebruary On Sunday, Russian forces released a round of rockets on Kyiv, its very first attack on the capital in weeks. Several see the strikes as a program of defiance versus the Group of Seven leaders that were fulfilling the exact same day to go over efforts to limit and push the Kremlin.
Still, Johnson prompted the West to continue its assistance of Ukraine as the war drags out. Allowing Russian success might set a hazardous precedent, he stated.
“I would just say to people in the United States that this is something that America historically does and has to do, and that is to step up for peace and freedom and democracy,” Johnson stated on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And if we let Putin get away with it, and just annex, conquer sizable parts of a free, independent, sovereign country, which is what he is poised to do… then the consequences for the world are absolutely catastrophic… we’re legitimizing further acquisition by him by violence of other parts of the Soviet Union,” he stated.
“You can see the consequences, the lessons that will be drawn. That is what is ultimately disastrous, not just for democracy and for the independence of countries, but for economic stability,” Johnson included.
The prime minister has actually been a strong fan of Ukraine and has actually two times gone to Kyiv to meet Ukrainian President VolodymyrZelenskyy Johnson worried that while the expenses to protect Ukraine are high, it’s definitely “a price worth paying for democracy and freedom.”
