Labour responds to the latest developments in Ukraine

David Lammy MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, responding to the latest developments in Ukraine including the cyber attack, said:

“Two days of talks in Kyiv has brought home the reality of Putin’s aggression and the dogged determination of Ukraine’s people to stand up to it.

“Amid cyber attacks and heightened border threats, Ukraine needs our support more than ever. NATO and Europe must stand firm and united. Threats of this kind must be met with strength and resolve.”

John Healey MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary, said:

“From being in Ukraine this week, it’s clear years of relentless Russian aggression has strengthened Ukraine’s resolve to resist these latest threats and their fight against any military incursion will prove bloody for Russia.

“The Western allies must work hard to maintain their deterrent pressure on Russia and stand by Ukraine.”
