UK’s PM says West ready to intensify sanctions on Russia for ‘as long as it takes’


WARSAW: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said during a visit to Poland on Tuesday that the West would indefinitely impose sanctions on the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin following its invasion of Ukraine.

“Vladimir Putin has also underestimated the unity and resolve of the West and of the rest of the world,” he told reporters. “And we will keep up the economic pressure… it is plainly already having a dramatic effect. We are ready to intensify and to keep going for as long as it takes.”
