Downing Street has announced that Boris Johnson will give an announcement today regarding the ongoing Russian conflict in Ukraine.

The Prime Minister will be joined by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte as well as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a joint press conference.

Johnson today warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin was “doubling down” on his attacks against Ukraine, and his “unrestrained” anger must be met with tougher sanctions.

The UK has faced criticism for refusing to open its borders to Ukrainians but Johnson has insisted the country would welcome those fleeing the fighting, with thousands of visa applications being processed.

He is also due to have talks with US President Joe Biden later today.
