Speaking to the British Parliament on Jan. 9, Foreign Secretary Lord David Cameron waxed eloquent in his defense of Ukraine … with American weapons and money. According to RT, Cameron pronounced: “Our commitment is such that with our allies, we want to demonstrate to Putin very clearly that he cannot wait us out, and we are prepared to support Ukraine through 2024, ’25, ’26.”
He added: “I think it’s the job of the strongest supporters of Ukraine—of which I would say Britain is rightly one—to do everything we can to keep it as high up the agenda as possible, to keep the partnership and coalition of countries that back Ukraine as strong and united and as purposeful as possible.” He bragged that support for Ukraine is “not an issue of contention in British politics,” as it may be in the U.S. and some other countries.
RT added the proper context: “London has played a key role in the conflict by encouraging Kiev not to make peace with Moscow. Then-PM Boris Johnson visited Ukraine in April 2022 and told President [Volodymyr] Zelenskyy that the West was not interested in a deal with Russia. Ukraine then reneged on a preliminary ceasefire agreement it had signed in March in Istanbul.”
