Ukraine Invasion: UK Threatens Russia with ‘Unprecedented’ Sanctions
POLITICS DIGEST- UK Minister of State for Europe and North America, James Cleverly, said the United Kingdom would introduce an “unprecedented” level of sanctions in response to Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.
“In response to this, the UK will, in close alignment with its international partners, bring forward an unprecedented level of sanctions to punish this aggression.
“And hopefully persuade the people around the Russian president that this is the wrong thing to do and reverse this attack,’’ he said.
Earlier, Russia started a military operation in Ukraine in response to requests of the self-proclaimed republics Luhansk and Donetsk for assistance against the Ukrainian army.
UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, is expected to update Parliament on the situation in Ukraine later on Thursday. (Sputnik/NAN).
