Britain: Any Russian invasion of Ukraine will be dealt with vigorously


British Foreign Secretary Liz Tras re-warned Russia that any invasion of Ukraine would be a costly mistake, but welcomed Moscow’s willingness to start talks.

“Any Russian invasion would be a huge strategic mistake and will be dealt with vigorously, including coordinated sanctions with our allies, which would incur a great cost to Russia’s interests and economy,” she said in a statement.

“The only way out of the current situation for Russia is dialogue, and I welcome the fact that Russia has stated that it is ready to start talks in January,” she said.

The Kremlin denies planning an invasion and says the West is occupied by Russophobia.

Moscow says NATO expansion threatens Russia and has failed to live up to the assurances given to it when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.
