British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has stepped up on Wednesday and said the “Bucha massacre” do not “look far short of genocide.”
Johnson warned Vladimir Putin’s regime can expect “more sanctions and more penalties” as the British Foreign Secretary has called on all Western leaders to end Russian energy imports.
The Prime Minister added, “I’m afraid when you look at what’s happening in Bucha, the revelations that we are seeing from what Putin has done in Ukraine, which doesn’t look far short of genocide to me, it is no wonder that people are responding in the way that they are.

“And I have no doubt that the international community – Britain very much in the front rank – will be moving again in lockstep to impose more sanctions and more penalties on Vladimir Putin’s regime.”
Truss has urged Germany and France to clamp down the Russian President’s regime and asked them to impose new sanctions on Moscow.
Truss said that only way to end the Ukraine war is by “being tough” on Russia and Putin by ending Russian-controlled oil, coal and gas imports in Europe.
Johnson has also urged Russians to not fall for Putin’s propaganda and “do not let Putin do this in your name” and he spoke partly in Russian, urging people to use VPN connections to access independent information about the war in Ukraine to find the truth of what is really happening.
Johnson also warned the crimes in Ukraine “betray the trust of every Russian mother who proudly waves goodbye to her son as he heads off to join the military” which are a “stain on the honour of Russia itself – a stain that will only grow larger and more indelible every day this war continues.”
He added, “Don’t just take my word for it: all you need is VPN connection to access independent information from anywhere in the world.
“When you find the truth, share it. Your president stands accused of committing war crimes. But I cannot believe he is acting in your name.”
To the Russian people, look at what is being done in your name.
