Johnson urged not to let Putin cut off some part of Ukraine "like a piece of salami"

On January 25, speaking in the House of Commons, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson lashed out with sharp criticism and warnings against Russia and its President Vladimir Putin, writes the British tabloid The Sun.

In his words, Russia will cause the worst bloodshed in Europe since World War II if it invades Ukraine. Moscow will deserve the condemnation of history.

If Russia follows this path, many sons of Russian mothers will not return home.

- he stressed.

The Ukrainian forces are ready to fight a long "guerrilla war", their resistance will be stubborn and "Russia will never be able to call this peace."

No one will benefit from such a disaster. If President Putin chooses the path of bloodshed and destruction, he must understand that it will be both tragic and futile.

Johnson pointed out.

He clarified that he “shudders” only at the thought of a massacre in Ukraine, which will turn the country into a “wasteland”. At the same time, the "attack" on Ukraine will lead to the strengthening of NATO troops near the borders of Russia.

And we also should not allow him (Putin - ed.) to believe that he can easily cut off some part of Ukraine, like a piece of salami. Ukrainians are determined to fight and are constantly improving their tactics of guerrilla warfare.

- he added.

In case of “aggression”, the Kremlin will face “tough economic sanctions” from the UK, other European countries and the USA. Moreover, the measures of influence will be "heavier than anything that has been previously taken against Russia" and Johnson hopes for their rapid introduction. At the same time, he acknowledged that there are disagreements within the West about how far one can go in the fight against the Russian economy.

London will seek to hit Moscow as hard as possible by "kicking the Russian Federation" out of the SWIFT international banking payment system. Johnson has no doubt that "it will be a very powerful weapon" as a deterrent, but much will depend on Washington in this matter.

Johnson drew attention to the fact that the EU is largely dependent on gas supplies from the Russian Federation and this makes it difficult to agree on the toughest sanctions. For example, Germany receives more than 1/3 of gas from the Russian Federation. He acknowledged that the crackdown would be more of a sacrifice for Berlin than for London, which has fewer ties to Moscow.

We must hope that in the interests of peace they (the Germans - ed.) are ready to make this sacrifice

he called.

We remind you that Johnson also threatened the transformation of Ukraine for the Russian Federation into a "new Chechnya" - the first war in the Chechen Republic.

    In this speech, B. Johnson, de facto, recognized Crimea and Donbass ... as not territories ("not cut off salami") of Ukraine!
    Where is the indignant protest of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry?
  2. He can easily cut off some part of Ukraine, like a piece salami

    He meant fat...

      No, no.. he knows what he's talking about!)
      It was the salami that he had stuck between his teeth, after another mass fun arranged by him during the hard lockdown announced for everyone else by himself.

      Now he will be “tried” for this, and most likely thrown out of the post of prime minister, which is why he cares so much about salami.)

    Everything about this phrase is great. The essence of the Anglo-Saxons in one sentence.
    They consider their own interests of the world, and others, as always, must sacrifice for them. yes

    The worst bloodshed in Europe since World War II was the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia. As for SWIFT, the Englishwoman hopes by this action to knock off the dollar in order to raise the pound again. With such friends, the United States does not need enemies!

    I don’t understand why ours are silent about the fact that Ukraine still does not have internationally recognized borders? Ukraine does not have an agreement on borders with Russia - the demarcation was never carried out after the Great Treaty of 97, and the Treaty itself has already been denounced. De jure, Russia and Ukraine have no border - it's just that everyone de facto uses what they inherited from the USSR after the reunification of Crimea with Russia. What kind of territorial integrity of Ukraine can we talk about? Russia and Ukraine can easily annex each other's territories - it's just that Ukraine has no strength for this, unlike Russia. But that's her problem.

    And why do we need a piece of Russian Little Russia? We will take everything when the ruin dies completely. We will not give up a piece of Russian land to the enemy.
