“Let’s recognize we still see NATO sitting on its hands. There’s a fire in Ukraine, and we won’t pull it out”
UK lawmaker, the Conservative MP Tobias Ellwood, who is a chair of the Commons defense committee in the British parliament in London, has repeated his appeals that Ukraine needs more weapons.
Ellwood told viewers of the GB News channel in the UK that the country was “getting better supporting Ukraine, but it’s coming very, very late in the day,” Guardian reports.
“Let’s recognize we still see NATO sitting on its hands,” he said. “There’s a fire in Ukraine, and we won’t pull it out. My concern is that fire will spread beyond Ukraine and we really will have to wake up.”
Ellwood raises concerns about possible further Russian expansion westwards, saying “There’s always a risk when you take on an adversary. There’s also a risk in doing nothing and allowing Russia to expand not just in Ukraine. I was recently in Moldova next door, which is not part of NATO, a very small country, with very limited armed forces. They feel very, very vulnerable indeed.”
