During a question and answer segment alongside Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Daria Kaleniuk of the Anti-Corruption Action Centre — who said she is from Kyiv, but had recently crossed the border into Warsaw, tearfully told Johnson that while he and NATO fear a World War III, such a disaster had already begun for her and her countrymen.
“You are afraid,” Kaleniuk said. “Because NATO is not willing to defend. Because NATO is afraid of World War III, but it is already started. And the Ukrainian children who are there [are] taking the hit.”as much as NATO is avoiding the world war 3 Belarus is getting ready to deploy troops to help Russia with its invasion of Ukraine.
Russian President Vladimir Putin and Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko are allies, and the troops could leave Belarus for Ukraine as early as Monday,”It’s very clear Minsk is now an extension of the Kremlin,” the official added.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he spoke to Lukashenko for the first time in two years on Sunday night, and was assured that “troops from Belarus will not go to Ukraine.” Earlier in the day, Lukashenko declared that Russia doesn’t need soldiers or weapons from Belarus, because “they have enough ammunition, and cartridges, and machine guns, and enough people to solve the problems that Russia wants to solve.”Lukashenko is known as “Europe’s last dictator,” and has been in power since 1994.
“You are talking about more sanctions, prime minister, but Roman Abramovich is not sanctioned,” she continued, referring to the Russian billionaire owner of Premier League football club Chelsea. “He’s in London, his children are not in the bombardments, his children are there in London.”
According to the Independent, Kaleniuk also called for a no-fly zone, echoing Ukrainian president
Johnson reportedly replied, “I’m acutely conscious that there is not enough that we can do, as the U.K. Government, to help in the way that you want and I’ve got to be honest about that,”
“The implication” of a no-fly zone, Johnson continued, “is the U.K. would be engaged in shooting down Russian planes, it would be engaged in direct combat with Russia.”
“That’s not something that we can do or that we’ve envisaged,” he said. “The consequences of that would be truly very, very difficult to control.”
