Jonathan Djanogly calls for firm action against Russia following Russian aggression in the sea of Azov


27th November 2018

Following the Government statement on Russian action in the sea of Azov, Jonathan Djanogly calls for firm action against this blatant, unacceptable and proven act of Russian aggression, including the provision of hard military support in Ukraine.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)

Incredibly, Russia still denies having a military presence in Ukraine, although we know that Russian troops and tanks are there in very significant numbers taking part in a war that is claiming some dozen Ukrainian lives every week. Now that we have seen this blatant, unacceptable and proven act of Russian aggression, can my right hon. Friend confirm that the UK will take firm action, including the provision of hard military support?

Alistair Burt

As I have reiterated throughout, it is essential that responses are co-ordinated and collective. The United Kingdom has made its position extremely clear at the United Nations, in collective meetings today and yesterday, and in the Foreign Secretary’s statement. We will work in concert with our partners in seeking to reverse these actions and achieve our objective, which is stability and mutual security in the region—mutual security that is based on respect for territorial integrity and a rules-based international system.
