UK considers it necessary to strengthen sanctions against Russia, said Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain, Boris Johnson.

“It is impossible to prevent the continuation of Russian aggression that we saw in this country (Ukraine – if). We will never recognize the annexation of Crimea. We think that pressure on Russia should be strengthened, and not Vice versa,” – said the British foreign Secretary at a press conference on Wednesday in Kiev.

In addition, he noted that Ukraine has seen positive progress in reforms, in particular, anti-corruption initiatives, which are particularly welcomed by the UK .
