The Minister for Foreign Affairs of the United Kingdom Liz Trass stated that the complete expulsion of Russian troops from Ukraine is a realistic goal. She said this on BBC radio, “Yevropeyska Pravda” (the "European Truth") reports with reference to The Guardian.
"The whole territory of Ukraine, which was captured by Russia, is illegally occupied. And, in the end, the Russians need to be driven out of this whole territory”, Trass said.
Asked if the British government believed that Russia could be ousted from all of Ukraine over a long period, she said:
"It's real, and that's why we're providing extra lethal care".
