Vladimir Putin has launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine this morning, ordering troops across the border and targeting major cities with ballistic missiles.

The Russian president authorised the “special military operation” in a surprise televised speech early this morning after amassing approximately 190,000 soldiers on the Ukrainian border.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Mr Putin has “chosen a path of bloodshed and destruction,” at the prospect of the largest armed conflict in Europe since World War Two.

The British Prime Minister spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in the early hours of this morning.

The Prime Minister said he was appalled by the unfolding events in Ukraine.

The Ukrainian President updated the Prime Minister on the attacks taking place, and the Prime Minister said the West would not stand by as President Putin waged his campaign against the Ukrainian people.

The Prime Minister said he hoped Ukraine could resist and that Ukraine and its people were in the thoughts of everyone in the United Kingdom during this dark time.

The Prime Minister will give an address to the House of Commons at 12.15 today.
