“There is a risk of a fatigue on Ukraine, there is a risk that people fail to see that this is a vital battle for our values, for the world”, but accelerate to achieve “a bad peace” it would be “a disaster”. This was stated by the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, in an interview with Corriere della Sera and other European newspapers on the eve of the G7 and the NATO summit. “Energy costs, the push of inflation, food prices are having an impact on the steadfastness of the people: but this is not having an impact on the steadfastness of the United Kingdom,” said Johnson, who said he was in favor of “to help the Ukrainians gain strategic resilience”. According to the British leader, it is “absolutely clear” that Kiev will not give up territories “in exchange for peace, they will not make a bad deal. They do not want to be forced into a negotiation, they will not agree to a frozen conflict in which Putin is able to continue to threaten further violence and aggression “. Johnson then argued the need for Ukrainian sovereignty to be restored on the ground “at least in the borders before February 24”, adding that “the future of the world depends on maintaining a strong, robust stance on Ukraine.” “This is not the time. to maintain the status quo, this is the moment to try to turn things around – he continued – As long as the Ukrainians are capable of mounting a counter-offensive, they should be supported, with the equipment they are asking of us “.
