Putin 'humiliating himself on world stage', says Truss as she calls for allies to do more for Ukraine

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said Vladimir Putin was “humiliating herself on the international stage” and called on allies around the globe to support Ukraine and stop the Russian leader.

Ms Truss asked fellow G7 foreign ministers to pledge to renew sanctions as long as President Putin’s troops are in Ukraine at the beginning of a three day meeting.

She urged countries to agree to the extension of the restrictions until a complete withdrawal is made and peace is reached.

The UK is insisting that Ukraine must have a clear path to NATO standard equipment. This includes immediate supply of artillery shells and training and expertise from NATO member countries. A plan to transition to this equipment before the end of the summer.

The foreign ministers from Ukraine and Moldova joined the G7 ministers at the Schleswig-Holstein meeting, Germany on Thursday evening. They discussed how they could support each other in the face Russian aggression, the UK government stated.

Following recent explosions in Transnistria, a Russian-backed separatist region of Moldova, the state of alert has been placed by Moldova.
