UK accelerating support for Ukraine because a prolonged stalemate would only benefit Russia
UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak supports accelerating support for Ukraine after completing a review that a “prolonged stalemate” in the war would benefit Russia, Guardian reports citing a No 10 spokesperson.
“He [Sunak] had reviewed the UK’s approach and concluded that a prolonged stalemate in the conflict would only benefit Russia. Which was why he had decided there was an opportunity to accelerate UK support working closely with our allies to give Ukraine the best chance of success and make the most of the window of opportunity where Russian forces were on the back foot,” a spokesperson said.
According to a spokesperson, Sunak said the new strategy would also see greater diplomatic efforts and planning work with the Ukrainian on how to rebuild once the conflict had ended.
