‘No blame’ can be placed on Ukraine for defending itself, says Sunak


Rishi Sunak told the House of Commons that, “No blame can be placed on a country [Ukraine] trying to defend itself against such a barrage. The blame belongs solely to Russia”.

During the bombardment of Ukraine on Tuesday, an explosion took place in eastern Poland. An investigation is ongoing, but early reports suggest it may have resulted from Ukraine trying to intercept a Russian missile.

Sunak also told the commons that “most” of the G20 had strongly condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Prime Minister set out his meetings with Joe Biden and Narendra Modi and said that in his meetings with leaders in Bali there had been a “shared determination to… drive a better future”.

“By being strong abroad we strengthen our resilience at home so we will continue to support Ukraine”, he said.
