If Russian leader Vladimir Putin is not stopped in Ukraine, he will be back "for more."

That's according to UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron, Ukrinform reports, citing The Sun.

He stressed that Britain must understand how the world has changed.

"The forces shaping it – a warmonger in the Kremlin, a more aggressive China, Islamist extremism poisoning young minds – these things aren't going to disappear overnight. There's no point hoping for some magical return to the world as it once was," Cameron said.

He added that hope is not a policy.

"If Putin isn't stopped in Ukraine he will be back for more. And we know from our history that appeasing dictators ultimately wrecks British interests and costs British lives," Cameron said.
