British Foreign Affairs: Putin must fail

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said in a press conference with his British counterpart Liz Truss that Russian President Vladimir Putin rejected any opportunity offered by the United States to de-escalate the conflict in Ukraine, preferring to intensify its military presence. “Putin must fail,” said the British Foreign Office chief.

We have worked to create opportunities for President Putin. He is the only one who can decide to live with them or not. So far, every time he had the chance, he stepped on the throttle and continued down this horrible path,” Blinken said.

The US Secretary of State said he did not understand Moscow’s goal, as “the Ukrainians have shown that they will not accept any puppet government that Putin will try to form after replacing the elected Ukrainian government.”

“Attempting to bring such a puppet government to power by keeping Russian forces in Ukraine will lead to prolonged bloody unrest,” Blinken said. Senior US defense officials said last month that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was aimed at “decapitating” the government of an Eastern European country.

Blinken called Russia’s proposal to create humanitarian corridors between Ukraine and Russia absurd. The head of the ministry called on Moscow to allow the safe departure of Ukrainian civilians.

“It is offensive to suggest that the Ukrainian people are seeking asylum from the same government that takes their lives for granted,” he added.

British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said at a press conference that the United Kingdom will provide Ukraine with air defense systems. “The best way to protect the sky is to use anti-aircraft weapons, which the UK will deliver to Ukraine,” he said. He also spoke of the UK’s failure to establish a no-fly zone over the humanitarian corridors of Ukraine, as this would “lead to a direct confrontation between NATO and Russia”. The UK president added that the UK wanted Russia to be completely excluded from SWIFT’s network of international interbank communications and transactions and for the G7 to stop using Russian oil and gas. “We need to double our sanctions,” he said. According to Truss, the Russian invasion of Ukraine “is causing tremendous pain and suffering,” but Putin is not moving as quickly as he had planned. Putin surprised us with our unity and the severity of our sanctions. The brave Ukrainian people surprised him with his determination. We cannot give up now.
