Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Boris Johnson, in a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, urged not to negotiate on the terms of the Russian Federation.
This is stated in the message on the website of the British government.
In particular, Johnson and Macron are united in condemning Putin’s deadly madness and agreed to coordinate more closely long-term security and economic support for Ukraine, as well as measures to isolate Russia.
“The Prime Minister spoke about his visit to Kyiv last month and shared his conviction that Ukraine will win with the support of the necessary level of defensive military assistance. He urged to avoid any negotiations with the Russians on terms that would give credibility to the Kremlin’s false narrative about the invasion, but emphasized that this decision depends on the Ukrainian government,” the message reads.
Also, Johnson and Macron shared concerns about the impact of the invasion of Ukraine on global energy and food prices. They agreed to work within the G7 to facilitate influence within countries and for the economies of developing countries.
As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 3, Johnson announced the transfer of Brimstone anti-ship missiles, Stormer anti-aircraft systems and 300 million pounds in other military assistance to Ukraine.
