The UK stands with Ukraine
The UK and our allies condemn the Russian government’s unprovoked and premeditated invasion of Ukraine. We stand with Ukraine.
The UK government has announced new sanctions, hitting Putin’s inner circle.
Amongst those sanctioned is Vladimir Potanin – Russia’s second richest man and owner of major conglomerate Interros. Potanin continues to amass wealth as he supports Putin’s regime, acquiring Rosbank, and shares in Tinkoff Bank in the period since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The UK has sanctioned more than 1,100 people and over 120 businesses since Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. Read the government’s previous announcements about UK sanctions imposed on Russia.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on world leaders at the G7 Summit to take urgent action to get essential food supplies out of Ukraine.
The Russian blockade of major Ukrainian ports such as Odesa, attacks on farms and warehouses, as well as other huge structural issues caused by the Russian invasion, have prevented Ukrainian food from reaching the global market.
The Prime Minister has offered to launch a major training operation for Ukrainian forces, with the potential to train up to 10,000 soldiers every 120 days.
During a visit to Kyiv, the Prime Minister told President Zelenskyy the UK could spearhead the landmark programme, which would fundamentally change the equation of the war, ensuring the Armed Forces of Ukraine have the resilience they need to be victorious in their fight for enduring peace.
