British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, speaking at the Sydney Lowy Institute, among other things, spoke about the tense situation around Ukraine, calling on Russia to de-escalate and start negotiations in order to prevent a military operation. At the same time, Mrs. Truss noted that Ukraine had previously experienced many invasions – “from the Mongols to the Tatars.”

British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, who is visiting Australia to discuss cooperation under the AUKUS partnership, delivered a speech at the Sydney Lowy Institute think tank. Among other things, she touched on the situation around Ukraine, calling on Russian President Vladimir Putin “to retreat from Ukraine before he makes a huge strategic mistake.” In her opinion, “the invasion will drag Russia into a quagmire, like the one that was formed as a result of the war in Afghanistan or the conflict in Chechnya.”

According to the minister, Ukraine has experienced many invasions – “from the Mongols to the Tatars.” “Ukraine is a proud country with a long history. They had known invasions before, from the Mongols to the Tatars. They suffered from a famine arranged by the state. Their ability to endure has long roots. If necessary, the Ukrainians will fight to defend their country,” Truss said.
