Statement on Ukraine

This is a dark day for Ukraine, Europe and the whole world. The UK stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and will work with our allies in Europe, the US and around the world to support Ukraine against this abhorrent invasion by Russia. My thoughts and prayers especially at this time are with the civilians of Ukraine, who face the distress and horror of this unfolding situation, and who face awful choices in terms of keeping themselves and their families safe.
