 UK’s Johnson says pressure on Russia should be increased

British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson stressed the need to stop further Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainski Novyny, Johnson said at a joint press conference with Foreign Ministers of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin and Poland Witold Waszczykowski in Kyiv on Wednesday.

The diplomat said continuation of the Russian aggression that was underway in Ukraine must not be allowed. According to him, the British authorities will never recognize annexation of Crimea while they believe the pressure on Russia should be stepped up, not the other way around.
