PM prepares defiant message for Putin ahead of meeting - 'We will stand by NATO'

Russia - Ukraine


The move may shift attention from Mr Johnson’s problems at home but Jonathan Eyal, international director of the Royal United Services Institute, said that Britain’s input is key. He said: “It’s simply wrong to suggest that because the PM has an interest in deflecting from his own domestic trouble, all that we’re doing in the case of Ukraine is a sham. That’s simply nonsense. Nobody is suggesting that Britain single-handedly is going to save Ukraine or defend Ukraine. But the British contribution has made a substantial difference to the way Europeans have approached the crisis and has stiffened the resolve of other countries to stand up to Russia.”
