Truss warns Putin against 'mistake' that 'will cost lives on both sides' – War fears surge

The Foreign Secretary joined a NATO-Russia Council meeting today. As tensions with Russia threaten to boil over, Ms Truss warned the military build-up in Crimea, is “unacceptable”. If Russia continues its aggressive strategy in Ukraine, Ms Truss indicated heavy sanctions could soon be imposed on the state. 

She said: “The UK and our Allies made clear to Russia that its military build-up on the border of Ukraine and in illegally annexed Crimea is unacceptable.

“We condemn Russia’s aggression and destabilising activity.

A further military incursion into Ukraine would be a massive strategic mistake and come with a severe cost on Russia’s economy, including coordinated sanctions.

“The quagmire of a long-running conflict would cost lives and damage communities on both sides.

“This is the reality of armed conflict, as we have seen before.”
