Putin needs to realise he cannot succeed, says Boris Johnson

In an interview with BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says “in one important sense, Putin has already failed”.

The prime minister says the Russian president “did not understand what he would encounter when he sent his troops in to Ukraine” and the “strength of their resistance”.

He accused Putin of “committing a series of war crimes” on a level which has not been since in Europe “since the Third Reich, not since the Second World War”.

Johnson says the UK wants to do more and feels “the agony of Ukrainians”.

“Putin needs to realise that he cannot now succeed,” he says.

“He won’t be able to crush and conquer Ukraine, because they’ve shown fundamentally that they have an indomitable spirit. So… he’s got to withdraw. He’s got to close this thing down. He’s got to take back his his tanks and his armour.

“And there’s got to be as a solution that respects the will of the Ukrainian people. And that’s what the UK will support.”
