Boris 'significantly concerned' about Russia moving troops and artillery to Ukraine border

The Russian government has denied it is planning a military attack but has not denied the movements. Trains have been spotted also carrying tanks and rocket artillery launchers across Russia.

In a phone call to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, Mr Johnson “reaffirmed his unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” said a Downing
Street spokesman.

Ukraine yesterday stepped up calls for the country to be allowed to join Nato.

In a phone call yesterday with Jens Stoltenberg, Nato Secretary General, Mr Zelensky said: “Nato is the only way to end the war in Donbass.”

Russian-supported separatists continue to fight a war against the Kiev government in the war-torn region of Ukraine.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said those living in eastern Ukraine would not accept Nato membership.

He said: “So far we’re not seeing an intention by the Ukrainian side to somehow calm down and move away from belligerent topics.”
