In the early hours of this morning, the independent and sovereign nation of Ukraine was invaded by Vladimir Putin’s Russian forces.
All people have a right to freedom and democracy, including the 44 million people in Ukraine. This is not a Western philosophy, it is the foundation of humanity.
For those with friends and family in Ukraine, this will be a time of anguish. My inbox is open for anyone who needs help.
At 7:30 this morning, the Prime Minister chaired an emergency Cobra meeting. He will be making an address to the nation shortly, followed by a statement in the House of Commons to set out the measures Britain will take with our allies to defend the Ukrainian people.
