Boris Johnson – 2022 Comments on Trip to Kyiv

The comments made by Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, on 1 February 2022.

It is the right of every Ukrainian to determine how they are governed. As a friend and a democratic partner, the UK will continue to uphold Ukraine’s sovereignty in the face of those who seek to destroy it.

We urge Russia to step back and engage in dialogue to find a diplomatic resolution and avoid further bloodshed.
