The UK will contribute to Nato deployments if Russia invades, Boris Johnson told Parliament on Tuesday, adding that Russia has a “gun to Ukraine’s head”.
The Prime Minister added that the UK will not hesitate to “toughen our national sanctions” against Russia in response to “whatever President Putin may do”.
He told MPs: “The British army leads the Nato battle group in Estonia and if Russia invades Ukraine we will look at additional deployments to aid our European allies.”
“We will not reopen that divide of the European security order because Russia has placed a gun to Ukraine’s head,” he added.
Tensions continue to rise in Eastern Europe with the Prime Minister yesterday warning Vladimir Putin that an invasion would be “painful, violent and bloody business”.
Mr Johnson had met US President Joe Biden virtually along with the leaders of Nato, the EU, Italy, Poland, France and Germany on Monday evening.
The PM’s comments came as the UK began withdrawing diplomats and embassy staff from Kyiv.The Telegraph YouTube Channel
