'Poked the Russian bear' Nigel Farage blasts 'consequences of EU and NATO expansion'


He tweeted: “Well, I was wrong. Putin has gone much further than I thought he would. A consequence of EU and Nato expansion, which came to a head in 2014. It made no sense to poke the Russian bear with a stick. These are dark days for Europe.” 

His remarks come as Prime Minister Boris Johnson stressed that Western inaction or under-reaction would have unthinkable consequences in a call with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Thursday.

He welcomed Germany’s decision to cancel certification of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia, which was seen as a major economic blow to Moscow.

But, according to a Downing Street spokesperson, he said allies “must now make a concerted effort to bring the strongest possible sanctions to bear on the Putin regime”.
