Truss: We will ensure Putin loses this war

The United Kingdom will never recognize the annexation of Ukraine's Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions.

That's according to British Prime Minister Liz Truss, Ukrinform reports, citing Euronews.

"Putin cannot be allowed to alter international borders using brute force. We will ensure he loses this illegal war," Truss said in a statement.

She also noted that "Putin has, once again, acted in violation of international law with clear disregard for the lives of the Ukrainian people he claims to represent."

"The UK will never ignore the sovereign will of those people and we will never accept the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia as anything other than Ukrainian territory," Truss added.

British Minister of Defense Ben Wallace this week paid a secret visit to Kyiv to discuss increasing military aid to Ukraine.
