At the NATO summit in Madrid later this week, Johnson outlined the key messages of the G7 meeting to provideUkrainewith long-standing support. Economic costs are "a price", he said. Worth paying for democracy and freedom.

"I just want to tell the American people that this is what America has historically done and must do," he said. Johnson added that the global consequences of winningRussiaare "absolutely devastating."

"This is worth standing up with us, and it is a violent invasion of free and independent sovereign nations like Ukraine. The principle is that it should not be, and that boundaries should not be changed by force. "

Johnson tried to avoid new controversies, and the official English reading of the meeting with Macron was half of the non-members. He did not even mention their discussion of the German president's plan for an independent "European political community". , Potentially including the United Kingdom.
