UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson: We Should Provide Support for Ukraine at Any Cost


Boris Johnson has urged other world leaders to hold firm in their long-term support for Ukraine, amid increasing concern in Downing Street that some countries could become swayed by calls for Kyiv to cede territory to Russia in exchange for peace.

Arriving at the G7 summit in southern Germany, as his domestic political woes continued to swirl, Johnson used a string of bilateral meetings and TV interviews to present himself as a bulwark against potential backsliding by the US and other western states.

The prime minister even connected the two situations, telling CNN that Vladimir Putin would not have been able to invade a sovereign neighbour if he too had “a committee of backbenchers” threatening to depose him for any mistakes.

Outlining his key message for the G7 gathering, one he will reiterate later this week at a Nato summit in Madrid, Johnson said the financial cost of providing longstanding support to Ukraine was “a price worth paying for democracy and freedom”.
