On Tuesday morning, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will chair an emergency meeting of the Cabinet Office Briefing Room A (COBRA), as the UK prepares further sanctions on Russia in response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s recognition of two separatist territories in eastern Ukraine. 

The news: Given that tanks have been observed approaching one of those regions of Donetsk, it can be inferred that the invasion of Ukraine has commenced,” UK Health Secretary, Sajid Javid stated at the meeting.

  • The COBRA meeting comes after widespread condemnation of Russia’s move, which Johnson described as a violation of international law as well as an omen and a very dark period, claiming that the area is heading in the wrong path. 
  • The COBRA meeting, according to Downing Street, will address the latest developments in Ukraine and coordinate the UK reaction, which will include agreeing on a “strong package of measures to be implemented immediately.”
  • In reaction to Russia’s violation of international law and attack on Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, the United Kingdom will announce fresh sanctions against it. The United Kingdom’s actions will have serious economic ramifications, according to UK Ambassador Barbara Woodward, who spoke during an emergency United Nations Security Council meeting on Ukraine. 

In addition: This Council must be unified in calling on Russia to de-escalate promptly; denouncing aggression against a sovereign nation and preserving Ukraine’s territorial integrity; and urging Russia to honour its Charter commitments to peacefully resolve disputes. Russia has pushed us to the edge of disaster. We are urging Russia to take a step back, she stated.

  • Foreign Secretary Liz Truss stated that penalties are in the works, which will make advantage of recent laws to impose limitations on Russian-linked individuals and organisations. 
  • The Cabinet Office Briefing Rooms are where the UK government’s crisis response discussions take place, with Briefing Room A being the most common, earning it the nickname Cobra. 

The UK government enacted new laws earlier this month that gave it more authority to impose penalties on anyone who are directly related to Russian actions in Ukraine.
