British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday that Russia’s “military adventure” on the borders of Ukraine and Poland could be a “tragic mistake” amid mounting tensions in this region.
Furthermore, Johnson told a committee of British parliamentarians: “What we need to do is ensure that everyone understands that the cost of a miscalculation at the borders of both Poland and Ukraine will be enormous.”
“I think it would be a tragic mistake for the Kremlin to think that gains can be made through a military adventure,” he added.
Johnson’s comments during a hearing with a parliamentary oversight committee came amid growing Western concerns about the military movements of Russian forces on the Ukrainian border.
