PM tells Ukranian people: ‘We are with you -Slava Ukraini! Glory to Ukraine’

Boris Johnson said, in full concert with the US and EU, the UK will introduce “new trade restrictions and stringent export controls”.

He said: “We will bring forward new legislation to ban the export of all dual-use items to Russia, including a range of high-end and critical technological equipment and components in sectors including electronics, telecommunications and aerospace.”

Mr Johnson said legislation to implement this will be laid in Parliament “early next week”.

The Prime Minister added: “These trade sanctions will constrain Russia’s military, industrial and technological capabilities for years to come.”

He said measures on unexplained wealth orders from the Economic Crime Bill will be brought forward and introduced before the Easter recess.

He cannot believe this horror is being done in Russia’s

He finishes by addressing the Ukrainians saying: “In this moment of agony I want to say we are with you and on your side.

“Your right to choose your own destiny is a right the UK and our allies will always defend. And in that spirit I join you by saying “Slava Ukraini!”

In the Soviet Union the slogan “Slava Ukraini!” was forbidden and discredited via a decades-long propaganda campaign alongside the diaspora Ukrainian nationalists who used it.

Boris Johnson ‘this hideous and barbarous venture of Vladimir Putin must end in failure’

The Prime Minister said: “I am proud that Britain did everything within our power to help Ukraine prepare for this onslaught and we will do our utmost to offer more help as our brave friends defend their homeland.”

He said the UK ambassador continues to work from the embassy in Lviv.

He said the G7 agreed to work in unity to “maximise the economic price that Putin will pay for his aggression”, saying that must include “ending Europe’s collective dependence on Russian oil and gas that has served to empower Putin for too long”.

He also said “countries that together comprise about half the world economy are now engaged in maximising economic pressure on one that makes up a mere 2%”.

Boris Johnson calls Putin a ‘blood stained aggressor’ in Commons statement

The Prime Minister opens his statement by calling Ukraine’s people “beautiful and innocent”.

He said at this stage Ukrainians are offering a fierce defence of their country and hails their resolve.

Mr Johnson calls Putin’s pretext for war to de-Nazifi Ukraine “absurd”.

Boris Johnson said: “Putin will stand condemned in the eyes of the world and of history. He will never be able to cleanse the blood of Ukraine from his hands.

“Although the UK and our allies tried every avenue for diplomacy until the final hour, I am driven to conclude that Putin was always determined to attack his neighbour, no matter what we did.”

“Now we see [Putin] for what he is. A blood-stained aggressor who believes in Imperial conquest.”
