Johnson discussed the situation in Ukraine during his visit to Rwanda, where the Commonwealth summit was being held.
- I appeal to my colleagues in the G7 and, in particular, to NATO: now is not the time to negotiate and call on Ukrainians to agree to a bad peace, to a peace for which they are invited to give up pieces of their territory in exchange for a ceasefire. I think it would be a disaster. This will provoke further escalation from Putin, whenever he wants it, Johnson quoted The Guardian as saying.
Recall that on June 17, the British Prime Minister arrived in Kyiv on an unscheduled visit. This was the politician's second visit to the Ukrainian capital since the beginning of the Russian special operation. London allocates more and more assistance to Kyiv - for example, in May, the republic received 1.3 billion pounds, but the British themselves do not share the head of government's enthusiasm for such significant support for Ukraine. So, having learned about the government's multimillion-dollar allocations to help Ukraine, readers of the Daily Express newspaper lashed out at the actions of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
