Boris Johnson speaks Russian while addressing his compatriots during the invasion of Ukraine

Foreign Minister Liz Truss said the war in Ukraine would deal an economic blow to Britain, but it was a price the country had to be prepared to pay.

To talk weather forecast Trevor Phillips, Ms Truss said: “If we don’t stop Putin in Ukraine, we will see others like the Baltic, Poland, Moldova get threatened, and that could result in a conflict with NATO.

“That’s why it’s so important that we make sacrifices now.

Yes, there will be an economic cost here in the UK, a cost in terms of access to oil and gas markets. I firmly believe that the British people now understand the price we will pay if we do not stand up to Putin.

It came as the Secretary of State had previously warned that the conflict could last for years, but hinted that it could mark the “beginning of the end” for President Putin.

We know that Russia has strong forces, but Ukrainians are brave.

“This could be the beginning of the end for Putin,” he said.

Angus Robertson says Britain should apply ‘maximum pressure’ on Russia

The Scottish Foreign Minister has said that in order for Britain to surrender to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, it must increase its sanctions on Moscow and be prepared to deal with the economic consequences.

Speaking to BBC Scotland today, Angus Robertson said: “Unfortunately, with President Putin, we have left deterrence behind.

“What we need to do is make sure we put maximum pressure on the Russian government so that continuing this offensive military action in Ukraine comes at a cost. »

Given that the war in Ukraine will likely increase food and energy prices, Mr Roberson said Britons should understand that “there will be a cost”.

But he added: “War is even more costly, so let’s do everything we can to help President Putin understand that he cannot continue this military aggression.

“Our friends in Ukraine should know that we will do everything we can to help them in terms of humanitarian aid, military support and support for those seeking refuge elsewhere in Europe.

Sanctions need to be tightened this week, governments need to talk to each other, we can always do more. »
