FORMER Prime Minister Boris Johnson urges the West to provide 'more weapons' to Ukraine.
Providing Ukraine with the weapons to take back the so-called “land bridge” invaded by Russian forces would be “game over” for Russian President Vladimir Putin, Boris Johnson has said.
The former prime minister, asked after a speech at the Atlantic Council in Washington, US, what land bridge he had been referring to, said: “This is the area, as it was, between Mariupol, between Donbas and the Crimea that Putin has taken, that long strip of land that basically prevents the Ukrainians from reaching the Azov Sea. That’s the area.
“If they take that back — which they can and they have a plan — if they can take back Melitopol and Berdyansk and Mariupol, get back those areas, it is game over for Putin. That’s what needs to happen.”
During the speech, he urged the West to provide Kyiv with the weapons it needs for an offensive, including long-range missiles and fighter jets.
