Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has confirmed the British government may accelerate legislation so the country could come down harder on Russia and help to de-escalate the military build-up along Ukraine’s border. Russia has amassed about 100,000 troops on its western border with Ukraine, which has prompted the United States to put 8,500 military personnel on “heightened alert”. Ms Truss, when asked about possible sanctions on Russian President Vladimir Putin, told Sky they “are not ruling anything out”. British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss says the UK has not ruled out imposing sanctions on Russia. Picture: Bianca De Marchi-Pool/Getty Images “We’ll be bringing forward new legislation to make our sanctions regime tougher so we are able to target more companies and individuals in Russia,” she added. “We will be bringing that forward in the next few days. I’m not ruling that out.” The UK previously confirmed it was supplying Ukraine with “self-defence” weapons. The United States has threatened to impose economic sanctions on Russia if it invades Ukraine, however, President Joe Biden has warned he will impose personal sanctions on President Putin in the event of an invasion, according to the ABC.  "If he[Putin] were to move in with all those forces, it would be the largest invasion since World War II. It would change the world," Mr Biden said.  "I may be moving some of those troops in the nearer term, just because it takes time."  Stream more world news live & on demand with Flash, Australia's biggest news streaming service. UK's Foreign Minister last week also warned President Putin against an invasion - which she stated would be a"massive strategic mistake".  “The Kremlin haven’t learnt the lessons of history. They dream of recreating the Soviet Union or a kind of greater Russia," Ms Truss said. "They claim they want stability while they work to threaten and destabilise others. We know what lies down that path and terrible toll in lives lost and human suffering it brings."  Australian Defence Minister Peter Dutton noted the significance of the UK's role in maintaining stability in relation to Russia and Ukraine.  "So that’s a huge concern I’m sure for the UK and the world at the moment,” he told 2GB radio last week.  “Everyone’s watching those steps closely. “If we’re going to deter countries from aggressive behaviour then we’re best to do that with strong friends and allies and we have that in the UK and the US."
