US-Russia talks, 10 January 2022: FCDO statement
A spokesperson gave a Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office statement on the US-Russia talks held in Geneva on 10 January 2022.
An FCDO spokesperson said:
The UK is working closely with our allies and partners, including the US, to make clear to Russia that we will not accept its campaign to subvert its democratic neighbours.
Russia must stop its acts of aggression and pursue a path of diplomacy.
We are united with our allies and partners in condemning Russia’s threatening behaviour and we will hold Russia to its Helsinki, Budapest and Minsk commitments.
Any military incursion into Ukraine would be a massive strategic mistake with severe costs.
At the NATO-Russia Council on Wednesday the UK, along with our allies, will tell Russia that its military build-up on Ukraine’s borders is utterly unacceptable.
