British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Sunday said that allowing Russian President Vladimir Putin to succeed in his invasion of Ukraine would be "absolutely catastrophic."
Johnson made the remarks while appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," only hours after Russia launched more missile attacks in Kyiv.
The British leader told anchor Jake Tapper that Western nations needed to maintain their resolve in assisting Ukraine in their efforts to stave off further advances by Russian military forces, even with oil prices remaining elevated across much of the world, including the US.
"I would just say to people in the United States that this is something that America historically does and has to do, and that is to step up for peace and freedom and democracy," he said. "And if we let Putin get away with it, and just annex, conquer sizable parts of a free, independent, sovereign country, which is what he is poised to do ... then the consequences for the world are absolutely catastrophic."
Johnson and other Group of Seven (G7) world leaders arrived in Germany's Bavarian Alps this weekend and are set to continue mapping out their approach to handling Russia's aggression.
