Liz Truss: UK doing as much as possible to support Ukrainians

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said the UK Government is doing “all we can to support the Ukrainians”.

Speaking in Brussels, Ms Truss said she was holding various meetings to show “the strength of our unity in challenging Vladimir Putin, in stopping Putin in Ukraine”.

“We’re doing all we can to support the Ukrainians through defensive weapons, where the UK led – we were the first European country to donate defensive weapons, and we’re also going to be talking about sanctions.”

She said sanctions were having a “big effect in Russia” but she said she was looking at how to speed up the process.

“We’ve sanctioned more companies than our counterparts across the world, we’ve just sanctioned two more major oligarchs last night,” she said.

“What I’m doing is looking how we can speed up that process to make even more progress on that front.

“The number one thing that’s important though, is that we are unified with our partners across the world in putting the toughest ever sanctions we’ve had on Russia.”

Putin’s tactics in Ukraine to become “ever more barbaric”, says Dominic Raab

The West must be prepared for Russian Vladimir Putin’s tactics in Ukraine to become “ever more barbaric”, a Cabinet minister has warned.

Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Secretary Dominic Raab told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, the economic sanctions taken on Russia are “starting to bite” but that Britain and its allies need to “bed in and have the strategic stamina for the long haul”.

He added: “I’ve said that we can expect that, after the stuttering start to this campaign, that Putin would resort to ever more barbaric measures as he gets frustrated.

“And that is the next phase that we all need to be alert to, whether it is the sanctions or the steeling of the capacity and the will of the Ukrainian defence.”
