Boris Johnson urged US to give Ukraine everything it needs to defeat Putin to save time
The former British prime minister told Fox News that he called for Ukrainian troops to be provided with all the necessary weapons they need.
Responding to a question about the situation with F-16 fighter jets, Johnson supported providing Ukraine with all the necessary weapons.
“All I'm going to say is that every time we say it's a mistake to provide such and such one weapon, we end up doing it and it ends up that's the right thing for Ukraine,” Johnson said.
“I remember being told that it was a bad idea to give them anti-tank missiles. In fact, they were indispensable, and the United States – in the days of Donald Trump – provided them with Javelins as well. They were indispensable in battles to repel Russian tanks, “said the former head of the British government.
“People said that we should not give HIMARS. I remember arguing about multiple launch rocket systems, MLRS. In fact, they have proved invaluable to Ukrainians. We said the same thing about tanks,” he added.
