The United Kingdom will continue to support Ukraine regardless of the results of the elections in the United States of America. London will stand “side by side” with Kyiv, United Kingdom Defense Minister Grant Shapps said.
“That’s a while down the line before we see what happens in the Republican election, but we will carry on standing shoulder to shoulder with our friends in Ukraine,” Shapps said.
The United Kingdom’s support for Ukraine is “watertight,” the minister said in response to a question about what London would do if a Republican was elected President of the United States. Shapps also called the question speculative.
“We know what happens when we allow a tyrant to invade a neighbor and then continue westward. And it’s absolutely essential that Putin is unable to walk into a democratic neighbor without consequences. And that is why Britain has stood firm and we will continue to do so,” the Minister of Defense of the United Kingdom said.
