British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will begin what Downing Street calls a week of “targeted engagement” with his global counterparts to discuss the international response to Russian aggression and “continued support” for Ukraine. Boris Johnson will meet Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, according to a British government statement.
The leaders will participate in separate bilateral meetings and a joint tripartite meeting and will also hold a joint press conference in the Downing Street briefing room.
Prior to the joint press conference, the Prime Ministers of the United Kingdom, Canada and the Netherlands will visit the RAF base to meet with members of the British Armed Forces. The Canadian prime minister announced that he would meet British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Mark Rutte of the Netherlands to coordinate a response to Russia’s “blatant violation of international law and the Charter of the United Nations.”
Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also announced an additional $100 million (7,69,39,50,000) funding for the Ukrainian government to deal with the financial pressures caused by the “unjustified and illegal Russian invasion”.
We are about to leave for the UK. I’ll be sharing updates here throughout the week – about the work we’re doing to further support the people of Ukraine, and the progress we’re making with our allies and partners – so check back often.

UK allocates another $100 million to Ukraine
According to a British government statement, the money could be used to support public sector salaries, state management, provide pensions to Ukrainians and support “social safety nets”. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in the statement that since the “brutal and unlawful Russian attack”, people from all over the world have supported Ukraine.
He stated that the UK was sending essential supplies and medical aid to Ukraine. Johnson stressed that only Russian President Vladimir Putin can end the suffering in Ukraine. He stressed that the new economic funding will help Ukraine to cope with the deteriorating humanitarian situation.
British Prime Minister outlines a six-point plan for Ukraine
Earlier on March 6, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined a six-point plan for Ukraine against the Russian invasion and to ensure that Russian President Vladimir Putin “failed” in his plan.
In the plan, Johnson called on countries to enter into an international humanitarian confrontation with Ukraine. The six-point action plan also called on the country’s allies to escalate economic pressure on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Johnson insisted that they should do more to help Ukraine defend itself against Russia. Regardless, the British prime minister wants the “creeping normalization of what Russia is showing in Ukraine”.
He further urged them to opt for de-escalation diplomacy, but added that the Ukrainian government should be involved. Boris Johnson called for a swift campaign to bolster security and resilience in the Euro-Atlantic region.
Putin must fail and must be seen as a failure in this act of aggression.
We must come together under a six-point plan to ensure that Putin does not fulfill his ambitions.
