Alex was at the despatch box to update the House on Britain's military contribution to Ukraine.
Responding to speeches from Boris Johnson and Liz Truss, Alex paid tribute to the 'sheer bloody-minded defiance' of the Ukrainian people as he confirmed that the UK will continue to help lead the international military and diplomatic effort to uphold the international rules-based order.
Please see below an extract from Alex's speech:
"The signal we are sending to Vladimir Putin could not be clearer. He has turned his country into a pariah and the most sanctioned nation on the planet. Meanwhile, the world stands with Ukraine, ready to support that proud and defiant country to defend its territory and its people.
One year on, with Russia gearing up for a new offensive, Putin remains unrepentant. His only coherent war aims are for more war, more death and more suffering. His desperate hope is that the world will lose its nerve. It will not. Together we will defy him. Together we will prove him wrong. As President Zelensky told us in his stirring address to the House two weeks ago:
“We know freedom will win. We know Russia will lose. And we really know that victory will change the world"
Slava Ukraini, geroyam slava. [Glory to Ukraine, to the heroes glory]
