UK Tells Ukraine It Will Never Recognize Russian Attempts to Annex Territory

LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Liz Truss told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Wednesday that Britain would never recognize Russian attempts to annex its territory, a spokesperson for her office said following a call between the pair.

“The prime minister made clear that the UK would never recognize Russian attempts to annex sovereign territory. She reiterated that Ukraine could depend on the UK’s support until President Putin was defeated,” the spokesperson said.

The two leaders also discussed how to work together to secure gas supplies in the long term, the spokesperson added.
