Britain’s defense minister says it is important not to deceive Ukraine.
London. If Russia invades Ukraine, it will be “highly unlikely” that Britain and its allies will send troops to intervene. The announcement was made by British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace for The Spectator Weekly, AFP reported on Saturday.
“(Ukraine) is not a member of NATO, so it is very unlikely that anyone will send their troops to Ukraine to confront Russia,” Wallace said in an interview this week.
According to Wallace, it is important not to deceive Ukraine in this matter. Wallace said the West would try to prevent Russia from occupying Ukraine through “severe sanctions”. In this context, he noted the possibility of exempting Russia from the SWIFT international tariff system.
However, the head of the British Defense Ministry said that Britain could help by strengthening Ukraine’s capabilities.
I think we should all worry.
According to Wallace, it is not yet clear what the Russian president decided Vladimir Putin In connection with the invasion of Ukraine, but his actions suggest that Russia may occupy this neighboring country.
“I think we should all be concerned,” Wallace said.
Britain and other G7 countries have warned of “huge consequences” if Russia invades Ukraine this week. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson He said on Friday that he was examining “diplomatic and economic” means to prevent Russian “occupation”.
Both Kiev and the West accuse Moscow of amassing tens of thousands of troops along the border of the Russian Federation with Ukraine in preparation for a military invasion. Kiev hopes that by the end of January 2022 a potential increase or invasion may occur.
Moscow denies planning an attack, but wants to guarantee that Ukraine will never become a member of NATO.
