President Putin's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine is horrific and shocking, though sadly not a surprise. We cannot underestimate the seriousness of this moment.
Together with our allies, we must and will meet this terrible act of aggression with a hard-hitting response. We stand with Ukraine. We stand for freedom, democracy, and the rule of law. My thoughts are with the people of Ukraine who we know share these values.
We have already imposed sanctions, and the Prime Minister has been clear that there will be more to come. We are determined that President Putin's grotesque attempt to achieve a historic legacy for himself will result in a legacy of failure.
