Johnson, the president of the United Kingdom, outlined a six-point response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine



LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday urged other leaders to join a six-point plan to respond to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, ranging from humanitarian support to inflicting as much economic suffering on Moscow as possible.

Ahead of meetings with leaders from Canada, the Netherlands and Central Europe in London next week, Johnson said on Saturday that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion should fail and be seen as a failure.

“It is not enough to express our support for the rules-based international order: we must defend it from a persistent attempt to rewrite the rules with military force,” Johnson said in a statement.

He listed his goals, which included an international humanitarian alliance for Ukraine, support for self-defense, and maximizing economic pressure on Moscow.

Johnson also called for diplomatic tracks to de-escalate the escalation with the full participation of the Ukrainian government, strengthen security in the Euro-Atlantic region and end the “creeping normalization” of Russian activities in Ukraine.

After meeting the prime ministers of Canada and the Netherlands on Monday, Johnson will host leaders from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia on Tuesday, countries experiencing an influx of refugees due to the invasion.

Britain plans to move faster to punish Russian businessmen with new legal measures that will be sent to Parliament on Monday.
