(ANSA) – LONDON, March 30 – British Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab has been somewhat cautious about the possibility of the UK becoming a guarantor of neutrality and therefore of Ukraine’s security (similar to Article 5 of NATO) within the scope of a peace agreement between Kyiv and Moscow.
And he emphasized that it would depend on what exactly that involved — and he stressed — we’ve been very clear about the fact that we don’t want to engage in a direct military confrontation with Russia. Raab added that London was ready to assess the requests of President Volodymyr Zelensky, but reminded that Ukraine is not a member of NATO and therefore London is not required to repeat the mutual assistance commitments in force between NATO members.
The Deputy Prime Minister renewed his government’s doubts about the Kremlin’s announcement of reducing military involvement on the ground, and said that British sanctions against Moscow would remain in place until the withdrawal of Russian forces from Ukraine. (handle).
