"The speed and the resilience of the people of Kyiv and the people of Ukraine is a wonder to behold, which is why I am confident, with the continued support of the international community, the Ukrainians will prevail." The foreign secretary was speaking on Friday in the town of Irpin, on the outskirts of the capital, which was heavily bombarded when Russian forces attempted to storm Kyiv in the first weeks of the full-scale invasion.But data show that Mr Putin’s war of conquest defies an international trend.The Ukrainian military, helped by British and other Western weapons, pushed them back, paving the way for efforts to rebuild the shattered lives of civilians - even as the war rages on in the east and the south and with the persistent threat of airstrikes.Among them are some of the 300,000 reservists called up during a partial mobilisation which saw men press ganged into fighting, sometimes forcibly taken to barracks by police.Mr Cleverly visited a school, damaged in the onslaught, that is due to reopen next week thanks in part to UK funds.Warfare remains common across the world, as the invasion of Iraq, war in Afghanistan and many civil wars in sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere attest.Advertisement He also announced further civilian support - on top of weapons - for Ukraine, including 24 ambulances and six armoured vehicles.We share this pain.

That will be all of us soon. He should check out Afghanistan... Vital to the satanic money laundering pedofiles maybe, not to the rest of us But we are skint aren't we? Vital to whom? 👍🙏 It’s Kiev, learn to spell. Yes, vital for more people in your own country to die of starvation while you give millions to another country! That makes sense.
Any chance of asking the British taxpayers how we want our taxes wasted before obligating us? Should look after our own country first!! . Its turning into a third world 💩 hole 🙄🙄🙄 He dresses like a skateboarder
Vladimir Putin wants to be a conquerorVladimir Putin’s war of conquest defies an international trend. Since 1975 no country has wholly gobbled up and held onto another Rofl. Russia „gobbled up“ the whole of Ukraine? News at 11. Russia is not in a war of conquest. They recognized the independence of the Donbass Republics' referenda and were invited in to protect them from attack. That's what the US did in Kosovo and then bombed Serbia Economist is wrong again
Anyone supporting Ukraine also supports money laundering/ biolabs/ corruption and ACTUAL Nazis- you should all be ashamed of yourselves. Without Russias involvement in ww2 you would all be speaking German now( instead of your politicians being run by them) Not much sign of any where he is more Propaganda Bullshite.
We need grain Ukraine Family British fascism in all its heyday. A country ruled by a stateless oligarchy that doesn't give a damn about the fate of the British. A parliamentary political class totally submissive to oligarchic financial power. The British people have an uncertain future.- British fascism in all its heyday.

No fucking way we set enough 🤬 So they found some other Crpto company to launder money? We all know that it's America that doing this shit. rustyrockets and MaxBlumenthal break it down well. What planet are you on? Did he bother to mention why? They are terrified that they will all be exposed when Putin wins Money laundering will be the least of their problems
That’s not very cleverly. This is the only way they can launder monies back to their liberal parties…. So forever then. . ? ...shouldnt have bombed that bridge, now ..
Vladimir Putin breathes heavily during awkward meeting with mums of soldiersVladimir Putin has met with a carefully selected group of mothers whose sons have been sent to fight and die in Ukraine.
How about exercising the same coverage to Syria and Palestine who have been living under such circumstances for years
Vladimir Putin sits down with soldiers' mothers in bid to stop viral spread of complaintsThe Russian president sat up close and personal amongst the women, telling them he shared the pain of those who have lost sons and would do everything he could to provide families with help and support. I bet he never told them the truth only what he wants them to know. Mothers will be taking to the streets pretty damn soon now that he's reached out and I'm expecting real change in Ru once that happens they won't put up with his BS much longer Surely the next intake
