“We are also strengthening our bilateral partnership following high-level talks in London in December and developing new trilateral ties with Poland and Ukraine. We also insist on alternative energy supplies so that countries are less dependent on Russian gas,” Truss said during a briefing.

In addition, the UK Geostrategy Council published on Twitter a map of the proposed union, in which the territories of Russia and Belarus are presented as “hostile” to the tripartite union of the state. According to the head of the British Foreign Office, London will continue to support Ukraine and call on the Russian Federation to “de-escalate”.

In recent months, foreign media have been circulating reports that Russia is allegedly preparing an “attack” on the territory of Ukraine and is gathering troops to the borders. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov stressed that Moscow is moving troops exclusively on its territory and such reports are “empty and unfounded escalation of tension.”

Earlier it was reported that British Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss will visit Moscow in February for talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
