“A mistake”: Sunak spoke out against calls to freeze war in Ukraine

May 23, 2023

Attempts to freeze the conflict in Ukraine are absolutely wrong. All of them must be nipped in the bud.

This was stated by British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, The Independent reports.


According to him, a temporary suspension of hostilities would not be a just and lasting peace for Ukraine.

"A cease-fire is not a just and lasting peace for Ukraine, but any peace process has to be started by a ceasefire, otherwise this war will go on and get worse and worse," Sunak said.

He added that Russia committed an illegal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

"It has committed heinous war crimes and the right and only response to that is for Russia to withdraw its forces from Ukraine, and all plans masquerading as peace plans, that are in fact attempts just to freeze the conflict where it is, are absolutely wrong and they should be called out," the prime minister stressed.
