“We are not seeking regime change in Moscow. But let’s be frank: a weakened Russia is a consequence of Putin’s decision to launch an unwarranted invasion. We want a final end to the conflict with a fettered Russia,” she said.
She noted that Putin plays on the fact that the desire of the free world to stop him cannot be compared with his determination to bring Ukraine to its knees.
“We proved that Russia was wrong and we will do it again. Now it is clear that Putin cannot and will not break or subdue Ukraine. But we must go further – the strategic and moral imperative for all of us is the victory of Ukraine,” Truss stressed.
In turn, she urged allies to do more to ensure that Ukraine gets what it needs, from heavy weapons like tanks and planes to ammunition and other supplies.
The British Foreign Minister added that her country is now cooperating with Poland through a joint commission to equip Ukraine with NATO-standard weapons.
“We must also continue to starve Putin’s war-financing machine by sanctioning more of those who finance his aggression, from oligarchs and banks to energy, gold and services, and relentlessly escalate pressure as long as Putin’s troops remain in Ukraine.” Truss summed up.
Recall that yesterday the British government to increase pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin imposed sanctions against his alleged mistress Alina Kabaeva, as well as relatives and ex-wife for the war unleashed by Russia against Ukraine.
