Boris Johnson told the Ukrainian Cathedral of the Holy Family on Sunday evening that he holds “no hostility” to the Russian people but there is “no possible excuse” for its leadership to choose to invade Ukraine.

He said: “I’m going to stress that there is no hostility in my heart towards the Russian people, none whatever – quite the reverse. My heart aches for the Russian parents who are already losing their children in this vicious and appalling war – just as it aches for the civilians and the people of Ukraine.

“But when it comes to the Russian leadership who chose this path of violence, and I stress chose this path of violence and aggression, there can be no possible excuse.

“And never in all my study or memory of politics and international affairs have I seen so clear a distinction between right and wrong, between good and evil, between light and dark – And that is the real reason why is Ukraine is our neighbour today.

“And by the way, I say to all the countries around the world who have only just been waking up to the horror of what is going on, I say to everyone around the world, that is why Ukraine should be your neighbour, too.

“And though the candle of freedom may burn low in Ukraine in the days, and perhaps the months ahead, I want you to know that we in the UK will stand by Ukraine, stand by you, until that candle blazes bright in independence and in liberty and in sovereign democracy for the people in Ukraine.”
