Boris Johnson to visit Ukraine, talk to Vladimir Putin

London: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will visit Ukraine next week and will also be making a call and talking to Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, attempting to help deescalate the prevailing situation at the Russia-Ukraine border.

Russia currently has amassed 1,30,000 troops on Ukraine’s border, and Putin has said that he was ready to proceed with the talks in-order to reach a viable solution, while stressing that the United States and NATO have not addressed Moscow’s primary security concerns.

The United States has said that there is a “distinct possibility” that Moscow may be invading Ukraine in February. British PM Boris Johnson has warned that if Russia were to invade, it would be a disaster and that no one would win the war.

Britain has said that it would sanction Russia if it makes any incursion into Ukraine, and has urged European allies to remain prepared.

“The Prime Minister is determined to accelerate diplomatic efforts and ramp up deterrence to avoid bloodshed in Europe,” a spokesperson from Johnson’s Downing Street office said.

“He will reiterate the need for Russia to step back and engage diplomatically when he speaks to President Putin this week,” the spokesperson added.

Ukraine has received defensive weapons and training from the British Government. However, the deployment of troops to Ukraine seems unlikely.
