Johnson, in statements given to the LBC radio station before traveling to Brussels to meet with his NATO peers, said that it is neccesary to impose more punitive measures on the Kremlin and increase the military aid to the Ukrainian government.

The only way forward is to maintain the preassure that we have been applying, and increase it, the British conservative Minister, who the day before, announced that the UK will deliver to Ukraine another 6,000 high-explosive anti-strike rockets and more than 33 million additional dollars.

The new financial package will raise the funds provided by the Biritish government to Ukraine to over 560 million dollars, and will be use to pay the soldiers, pilots and police´s wages and to ensure that they are well equipped.

London will also provide an additional 5,400,000 dollars to the BBC World News Service to counter disinformation campaigns in Rusia and Ukraine, and will offer financial support to the International Criminal Court to investigate alleged war crimes committed by Russian troops.

As part of these punitive measures, the British Foreign Ministry announced today that it has added 65 other Russian companies, banks and businessmen to the list of sanctioned parties including oil magnate Evgueni Shvidler, the Sovkomflot shipping company and the drone manufacturer Kronshtadt.
