Britain urged to prevent protracted conflict in Ukraine

British Prime Minister’s National Security Adviser Tim Barrow considered it necessary to prevent a protracted conflict in Ukraine and speed up the supply of weapons to Kyiv. On February 28, the publication reports The Times.

“We need to speed up our support. Ukraine must have the means to defend itself and be able to succeed on the battlefield,” he said.

Barrow added that London is considering supplying Kyiv with long-range weapons and precision-guided munitions.

On the eve of the Financial Times (FT) wrote about the growing fears in the European Union that the supply of arms to Ukraine does not contribute to a peaceful resolution of the conflict. Thus, European politicians were surprised by the statement of the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, who allowed the financing of the supply of fighter jets to Kyiv through the European Peace Fund.

Prior to this, on February 23, The New York Times reported that Britain had formed a secret task force to purchase weapons for Ukraine. As noted, Western countries are trying to find Soviet-made ammunition, because the Ukrainian army still relies mainly on this weapon. In this regard, the United States and other Western states are looking for weapons at factories in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Romania, and Luxembourg is transferring weapons made in the Czech Republic.

On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a message to the Federal Assembly, stressed that the more long-range weapons are supplied to Ukraine, the further the Russian Federation will be forced to move Ukrainian troops from its borders.

The special operation to protect Donbass, which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24, 2022, continues. The decision was made against the background of the aggravation of the situation in the region due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.
