Liz Truss: We will continue supporting Ukraine
(MENAFN) In her first address as premier of the United Kingdom on Wednesday, Liz Truss stated her country will continue to stand with Ukraine as it fights against Russia.
"I pledge that we will sustain or increase our military support to Ukraine for as long as it takes," Truss informed the UN General Assembly's 77th meeting. "We will not rest until Ukraine prevails.”
In her comments, she stated no one is intimidating Russia and President Vladimir Putin "is making yet more bogus claims and saber-rattling threats," which she said "will not work."
"And this morning, we have seen Putin trying to justify his catastrophic failures. He's doubling down by sending even more reservists to a terrible fate," she also said.
Truss noted that while "barbarous weapons" are murdering or hurting Ukrainians, "rape is being used as an instrument of war. Families are being torn apart.”
"He's desperately trying to claim the mantle of democracy for a regime without human rights or freedoms," she also declared.
"The international alliance is strong...Ukraine is strong.”
