British Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss said attempts to “appease” Russian Vladimir Putin are dangerous amid the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.
Truss said this in a press release ahead of her trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday.
“Russian aggression cannot be appeased. It must be met with force. We must be adamant in ensuring the victory of Ukraine with military assistance and sanctions.
“Now we can no longer take our foot off the gas pedal,” she was quoted by BBC as saying.
Truss will be addressing the armed forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina with an aim to urge UK’s western allies to make sure Putin loses in Ukraine, the press release said.
Recall that Truss had in March said that the west needs to ensure the Russian economy is crippled so that Putin will not be able to continue his invasion of Ukraine.
