Russia and Ukraine - update 17th February

Today, the Foreign Secretary urged Russia to step back from the brink and reaffirmed our unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty. 

  • The West must not be lulled into a false sense of security by Russia claiming some of their troops have been withdrawn from the Ukrainian border. 
  • Britain remains united with NATO allies, providing vital support to help our Ukrainian friends defend themselves and stand ready with a severe set of sanctions on a level not seen before. 
  • On her visit to Kyiv today, the Foreign Secretary reaffirmed Britain's commitment to a world free from aggression and coercion, and made clear that if Russia continues down this path of aggression, they will be faced with severe economic costs.    
  • Alongside our allies, Britain will continue to take a hard-headed approach, stressing that there is still time for the Kremlin to step back and choose a different path through diplomacy.
