Ukraine LIVE: Putin ally warns ‘horsemen of apocalypse on way’ in shocking threat to West | World | News
Liz Truss has urged British nationalss not to go to Ukraine to fight after two soldiers were sentenced to death.
She told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “We’ve always been clear that our travel advice is not to go to Ukraine, and I was clear about that at the time.”
Ms Truss was reminded that she said in February: “Absolutely, if people want to support that struggle I would support them in doing that.”
She insisted: “What I said, though, is I also said the travel advice is not to go to Ukraine.”
She added that she will do “whatever is necessary” to secure the release of Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner.
She said the “best route” to their release is dealing with the Ukrainians, adding: “I can’t go into my discussions with the Ukrainians, but I can assure the families we’re working flat out on this.”
