A spokesperson for Downing Street commented: “The Prime Minister will chair a COBR at 0730 to discuss the response to the horrific attacks in Ukraine this morning.”
The Prime Minister is “appalled” that Russia has decided to invade. Johnson believes that Putin has chosen “a path of bloodshed and destruction”.
Johnson commented: “I have spoken to President Zelenskyy to discuss next steps,
“President Putin has chosen a path of bloodshed and destruction by launching this unprovoked attack on Ukraine.
“The UK and our allies will respond decisively.”
According to a Downing Street spokesperson, the West cannot stand by as war is waged. The spokesperson revealed: “Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in the early hours of this morning.
“The Prime Minister said he was appalled by the unfolding events in Ukraine.
“The Ukrainian President updated the Prime Minister on the attacks taking place, and the Prime Minister said the West would not stand by as President Putin waged his campaign against the Ukrainian people.
