British Prime Minister urged not to forget about the “Russian blood” that made it possible to defeat Nazism

Britain supports Ukraine’s sovereignty not because it wants to be hostile to Russia, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a speech at the Lord Mayor of London’s banquet.

According to him, “the concept of coalitions uniting around science, security, values, finance, diplomacy and, above all, people, should be at the heart of what Global Britain (Global Britain, the country’s foreign policy agenda) is doing.” However, “some countries” are not going to develop towards free market democracy, he added.

“We must deal with this, we must deal with this, we must have the most friendly and pragmatic relationship. But the consequence of this is that we are increasingly working with those who share our values ​​and motivations. Therefore, when we say that we support the sovereignty and integrity of Ukraine, it is not because we want to be hostile towards Russia, or that we want to somehow strategically surround or undermine this great country … This is because we have a commitment democracy and freedom, which is now shared on the vast territory of the European continent, ”said Johnson.

The text of the speech was circulated by the Prime Minister’s Office. At the same time, he urged not to forget that “it was Russian blood that made it possible to defeat Nazism.”

The British prime minister referred to the situation with migrants on the border of Belarus and Poland, pointing out that London reacted quickly when Warsaw asked for “help to cope with the contrived crisis on the border with Belarus.”

“And we hope that our friends may realize that there will soon be a choice between channeling more and more Russian hydrocarbons into giant new pipelines or defending Ukraine and defending the cause of peace and stability, let me put it this way,” he said …

Earlier, the Mirror newspaper, citing sources familiar with the situation, reported that Great Britain was ready to transfer up to 600 special forces soldiers to Ukraine due to fears of an allegedly impending Russian invasion.

Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier called alarming statements that the Russian Federation is allegedly preparing an invasion of Ukraine. According to the Russian leader, Moscow will also never agree that it is a party to the conflict in Ukraine.

The Russian Foreign Ministry denied reports of a number of Western media that Russia was allegedly pulling troops to the border with Ukraine. Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that Russia is moving troops within its territory and at its discretion. According to him, this does not threaten anyone and should not worry anyone.

Russia has repeatedly denied accusations of “aggressive actions” by the West and Ukraine, claiming that it does not threaten anyone, and statements about “Russian aggression” are used as an excuse to deploy more NATO military equipment near Russian borders.
