The British government, arguing that the Kremlin wanted to appoint a pro-Russian government in Ukraine, claimed that Russian intelligence was in contact with a former Ukrainian politician on this issue. The British government claimed that Russia aimed to appoint a pro-Moscow puppet regime in Ukraine. Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab said on Sunday that Moscow would face very serious economic sanctions if that happened. The British Foreign Office, on the other hand, argued that Russian intelligence services were in contact with some former Ukrainian politicians as part of their plans to invade Ukraine.
“We will not tolerate the Kremlin’s plot to install a pro-Russian administration in Ukraine,” Foreign Minister Liz Truss said on Twitter on Saturday. He knows he’s going to cut it,” he said.
“Stupid and absurd accusation” The British Foreign Office reported that it has information that the Russian government is considering ex-Ukrainian MP Yevheniy Murayev to head a possible pro-Russian government. However, the ministry refused to publish the evidence regarding these accusations. Making a statement regarding the allegations in question, Murayev said that the allegations in question were “stupid and absurd”.
