Johnson warns of a “very dangerous moment in history” after his meeting with Zelenskyj in Munich.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the world is facing a “very dangerous moment in history” amid what NATO says could be the prelude to a Russian invasion of Ukraine, the president later revealed in a brief meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.

“We are on the verge of a possible war in Europe and everyone at this conference wants to unite in support and solidarity with Ukraine,” he said in statements collected by Sky News.

Speaking head-to-head with Ukraine’s President, Johnson added that it is now “more important than ever” for Britain and its allies to show their support for Ukraine.

Zelenskyy then declared that it was “extremely important who stands by his side on this path” and that Ukraine had “very good friends” in this regard.

In his speech to the conference participants, Johnson said he wanted diplomacy to be successful, but that the world had to be “uncompromisingly honest” about the Russian threat.

“If Ukraine ends up being invaded, the repercussions will resonate around the world,” warned the British Prime Minister, who has reassured Ukrainians that the UK will help protect its sovereignty.

“How hollow, how meaningless, how offensive those words would seem, if at this moment their sovereignty and independence is at stake, let’s just look the other way,” he said.

“Now we are about to see a generation of bloodshed and misery,” he added, before warning again that Russia “had absolutely nothing to gain and everything to lose from this disastrous adventure.”

For his part, Zelenski has planned a number of additional meetings with Chancellor Olaf Scholz; with US Vice President Kamala Harris; Representatives of international financial institutions and “other partners and friends of Ukraine,” reports Ukrinform.

In this sense, President Zelenskyy expects “concrete agreements to receive additional military and financial support from our country in order to strengthen Ukraine’s resilience”.
