“Our immediate priority is to join with our allies to ensure that Ukraine prevails in her brave struggle against Putin’s aggression”
Ukraine must “prevail” against Russia’s invasion, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson told the House of Commons on July 4, 2022.
“Our immediate priority is to join with our allies to ensure that Ukraine prevails in her brave struggle against Putin’s aggression,” he said.
Johnson said the Madrid Nato summit “exceeded all expectations in the unity and single-minded resolve of the alliance to support Ukraine for as long as it takes.”
“All of us understand that if Putin is not stopped in Ukraine, he will find new targets for his revanchist attacks, and we are not defending some abstract ideal but the first principle of a peaceful world, which is that large, and powerful countries cannot be allowed to dismember their neighbors, and if this was ever permitted, then no nation anywhere would be safe.”
He said that Ukraine must have the strength to finish this war on the terms that President Zelenskyy has described.
