Lord Cameron says Russia ‘outmatched’ by Ukraine’s allies who must ‘make difference count’ | UK News

Lord Cameron says he wants Ukraine’s allies to “do more” to help defeat Russia and that together they “outmatch” President Vladimir Putin’s regime.

Speaking to Sky News at a security conference in Munich, the foreign secretary said Ukraine’s partners outmatched Russia “25 to one” and that they’ve “got to make that difference count”.

Lord Cameron said: “What I’m clear about is that Britain is absolutely in the lead of providing support [to Ukraine]. The first to provide so many different weapons systems and, of course, first to give the new security guarantees to Ukraine. Now others are following that.

“But most of all… look at what Ukraine’s allies have. If you add up our economies, we outmatch Russia 25 to one. We’ve got the ability to give that diplomatic, military, economic, moral support. We’ve just got to make that difference count.”

The former prime minister again urged the US to approve more aid funding for Ukraine, having already pushed for Congress to go ahead with a proposed $61bn (£49bn) funding package.

The funding package bill has passed through the Senate but faces a deeply uncertain future in the House of Representatives, where hardline Republicans oppose the legislation.

House Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican, criticised the bill for lacking conservative provisions to stem a record flow of migrants across the US-Mexico border.

Speaking about aid to Ukraine, Lord Cameron said. “Are we doing enough at the moment? No, I want us to do more.

“I know that Britain is doing what it can. The European Union has voted through its package to give massive support to Ukraine. We now need the US Congress to do the same.”

“If all those three things line up, I think that will make a real difference and demonstrate to Putin he can’t wait us out. He’s not going to win by testing our patience.”

Russian people speak out after Navalny dies

The former prime minister’s comments come after Oleksandr Syrskyi, Ukraine’s newly appointed commander-in-chief, said his forces were retreating from the frontline city of Avdiivka to “avoid encirclement” by Russian troops.

“Of course, things that happen in Ukraine, that’s for the Ukraine armed forces to decide,” Lord Cameron added.

“But I would point you towards the Black Sea, where yet again, another Russian ship has been sunk by incredibly brave Ukrainian action.

“And on the Black Sea, the Russian fleet has been pushed right back across the Black Sea. Ukraine is exporting again. Its economy is growing again. And that is incredibly important news.”

Navalny was ‘incredibly brave man’

Lord Cameron was also asked about Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, a chief critic of President Putin who was confirmed dead by prison authorities in Russia on Friday.

He called Navalny an “incredibly brave man” and added: “His life revealed so much about the truth of Putin’s ghastly regime, and his death has revealed that all over again.

“There should be consequences when appalling human rights outrages like this take place. What we do is, we look at whether there are individual people that are responsible and whether there are individual measures and actions that we can take.

“We don’t announce them in advance, so I can’t say any more than that – but that’s what we’ll be looking at,” Lord Cameron added.

“Of course, we’ve already summoned the ambassador and we’ve made clear our views about this dreadful event and the way this person was treated.”

Rishi Sunak nervously waits to see if more Boris Johnson allies will quit as MPs | Politics News

Rishi Sunak and the Tory high command are nervously waiting to see if more Boris Johnson allies quit as MPs – amid fears that the feud is set to plunge the party into civil war.

Johnson supporters claim two more MPs are on “resignation watch” after Nadine Dorries and Nigel Adams joined the former prime minister in quitting with immediate effect and triggering by-elections.

But some government loyalists think support for the rebellion is stalling. Claims by Johnson’s camp that up to six more MPs were poised to quit have failed to materialise so far.

What does Johnson quitting mean for Sunak?

Some of Mr Johnson’s closest allies – led by the newly knighted Sir Jacob Rees-Mogg – have publicly declared they are not quitting, despite offering vocal support for the former PM.

Writing in The Mail on Sunday, Sir Jacob said: “I am not, unlike some of my fellow Boris admirers, resigning my Commons seat. I will fight my North East Somerset seat at the next election and campaign for a Conservative victory nationally.”

He also claimed Mr Johnson’s resignation – and his suggestion that he might fight another seat at the next election – “puts him in pole position to return as Conservative leader if a vacancy should arise”.

In his angry resignation statement on Friday evening, Mr Johnson said: “It is very sad to be leaving parliament – at least for now.”

Issuing a direct threat to Mr Sunak, Sir Jacob added: “I would most strongly warn Conservative Party managers against any attempt to block Boris if he seeks the party nomination in another seat.

“Any attempt to do so would shatter our fragile party unity and plunge the Conservatives into civil war.”

Nadine Dorries speaks to Sky News after resigning

Leading Brexit hardliner Lord Frost, writing in The Sunday Telegraph, also predicted a Johnson comeback – declaring: “True, he is leaving parliament, but only, as he himself says, ‘for now’.”

But party grandees opposed to a comeback by Mr Johnson – led by former deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine – urged the party leadership to block a return to the Commons by the former PM.

“To me it is inconceivable that in these circumstances he could stand as a Conservative member of parliament again,” Lord Heseltine wrote in The Observer.

“It is up to Conservative central office to affirm an official Conservative candidate. No doubt he will now go out into the world and make huge sums of money, writing history as he thinks it was conducted. But it will have little to do with the reality that he has left behind.”

From journalist to prime minister

Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, called for a general election following the trio of high-profile resignations from the Commons, claiming Mr Sunak had lost control of his government.

“Rishi Sunak must finally find a backbone, call an election, and let the public have their say on 13 years of Tory failure,” Sir Keir wrote in the Sunday Mirror.

“This farce must stop. People have had enough.”
