With a visit to the region next week and a call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will boost up diplomatic efforts to resolve the Ukraine situation.

The news: Russia has massed troops on Ukraine’s border, and Putin has stated that the U.S. and NATO have failed to satisfy Moscow’s primary security objectives, despite his willingness to continue talking.

  • The U.S. claims that Russia now has the capability to attack Ukraine, and Johnson has warned that an invasion by Russia would be a disaster in which no one would win.
  • Britain has warned that if Russia invades Ukraine, it would face sanctions, and has pushed European partners to follow suit. On Monday, his government is anticipated to announce a toughening of sanctions.

What they’re saying: “The Prime Minister is determined to accelerate diplomatic efforts and ramp up deterrence to avoid bloodshed in Europe,” a spokesperson from Johnson’s Downing Street office said in a statement.

  • “He will reiterate the need for Russia to step back and engage diplomatically when he speaks to President Putin this week.”
  • Johnson’s office didn’t say when or where the trip will take place.

What’s going on: Although governments have stated that the deployment of combat soldiers is improbable, Britain has provided defensive weapons and training staff to Ukraine.

  • Johnson is examining alternatives such as further deployments and NATO defence boosting, and Britain will participate in U.N. Security Council negotiations on Monday to attempt to end the situation through diplomatic methods.
