Great Britain opposed the expansion of hostilities in the Black Sea.

Great Britain opposed the expansion of hostilities in the Black Sea.

Britain opposes an “expansion” of hostilities, British Permanent Representative to the UN Barbara Woodward said in response to a request for comment on Kiev’s decision to consider ships bound for Russia as carrying military cargo.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported that from July 21, Kyiv will consider ships traveling through the Black Sea to Russian ports as carrying military cargo.

Asked if London supports such a decision by Kyiv and would like it to turn the Black Sea completely into a war zone, Woodward stressed that Britain is opposed to the expansion of the conflict.

“This is the last thing we would like. So we do not support the expansion of hostilities in this direction,” she said.
