“Putin cannot be allowed to alter international borders using brute force. We will ensure he loses this illegal war”
The UK will never accept the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson, and Zaporizhzhia as “anything other than Ukrainian territory,” Prime Minister of the UK Liz Truss said, adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin was violating international law.
“Putin cannot be allowed to alter international borders using brute force. We will ensure he loses this illegal war,” Truss said in a statement on Friday.
“Putin has, once again, acted in violation of international law with clear disregard for the lives of the Ukrainian people he claims to represent.”
Liz Truss issued a statement on the morning of September 30, 2022, ahead of the expected move by Russian president Putin to recognize the Ukrainian territories as Russian following sham and internationally-condemned referenda.
