Britain came into conflict with the EU over Russia and Ukraine

Britain came into conflict with the EU over Russia and Ukraine

The uncompromising position taken by British Foreign Minister Truss on Russia did not find like-minded people in France and Germany. 

“Such harsh rhetoric is unlikely to be welcomed in Paris or Berlin, where Britain’s militant stance towards Russia has been mutedly criticized since the beginning of the conflict,” McTag said.

The authorities believe that the position of London is contrary to the positions of the EU countries, which introduces the political situation in Ukraine into a difficult situation. With this decision, the UK is trying to restore its reputation after Brexit.

“Even British government officials have expressed dismay that Truss’s belligerence is partly a political game designed to strengthen her position ahead of an election in which she will try to take Johnson’s place,” McTag said.
