The international community must make joint efforts to support Ukraine and stop Russian aggression now, otherwise, the price for the civilized world will be much higher and the consequences more painful.
This was stated by British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly in Washington during a joint press conference with U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"We have to recognize that if we do not restore the principles of the UN Charter - the fundamental basis of peace in the post-World War II era - so that larger countries cannot invade their neighbors with impunity, the world will become more dangerous, more expensive, more complex," the head of British diplomacy said.
According to him, Russia's war affects not only Ukraine but, of course, Ukrainians have suffered greatly. In this regard, he reminded that the war unleashed by the Kremlin affects the global economy, and people in both the United States and Britain have felt it. This is not a byproduct of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, it is part of the conflict, as Russia seeks to create economic problems in the area of hydrocarbon supplies, stopping grain supplies, etc.
"This concerns us, and it is in our interest, as well as in Ukraine's interest, that we maintain our strong support,"-
Cleverly emphasized. Otherwise, he said, it will be more painful and costly if it is not done now.
"I think we have to send a message that when we commit, we stick to it," the British Foreign Secretary said.-
