'Britain at forefront' Liz Truss says Brexit Britain leading fight against Russia


The Foreign Secretary gave an impassioned speech at the Conservative Party spring conference in support of Ukraine. Liz Truss lashed out at “horrible scenes” in Ukraine as she insisted more must be done. She said: “We’re using our Brexit freedoms to strike new trade deals, slash red tape and create new freeports.

“We’re ending our dependency on authoritarian regimes.

“The West focussed on cheap goods at the expense of freedom and security, never again.

“We’re banning Russian oil from our markets, we’ve ripped Huawei out of our phone networks and we have new vigilance on our critical supply chains.

“We have seen the most horrific, horrible scenes in Ukraine.

“Britain has stepped up, now we must do even more.

“Putin must lose in Ukraine and with Britain at the forefront, we will ensure he does.”
