Boris Johnson vows: ‘I believe Putin must fail, and we must succeed in safeguarding Ukraine.’

Boris Johnson has vowed that Russian president, Vladimir Putin must fail saying the invasion of Ukraine is “worse than our predictions,” .

The UK prime minister who has pledged to send weapons and aid to Ukraine says the East European country faces an “unfolding disaster”

Johnson made the statement on Tuesday, March 1 while on a visit to the Ukraine-Polan border with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Johnson warned, is worse than he expected, and Europe is now witnessing a “unfolding nightmare.”

“I’m afraid to say that the disaster we prophesied has occurred, and it is, if anything, worse than we anticipated. “We are witnessing a calamity unfolding on the European continent,” Johnson remarked.

“It is apparent that Vladimir Putin is willing to deploy savage and indiscriminate techniques against innocent populations, such as bombing tower blocks, sending missiles into tower blocks, and killing children,” he added.

Johnson praised Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s “leadership and courage,” saying he had “inspired and motivated” the world.

Johnson went on to say that Russian President Vladimir Putin had miscalculated the Ukrainian people’s “passionate desire to defend and safeguard their own country.”

“As this heinous conflict develops, I am utterly persuaded — more convinced than before — that Putin will fail. “I am confident that Putin will fail, and that we will be successful in protecting and preserving a sovereign, independent, and democratic Ukraine,” he added.

Johnson described the European Union’s economic penalties against Russia as “one of the most powerful packages of sanctions ever proposed against any government in the previous few decades.”

“It’s clearly having a huge effect already.” He went on to say, “We are ready to intensify and keep going for as long as it takes.”
