Russia ‘Miscalculated’ In Ukraine On Several Occasions — UK Ambassador 

(Last Updated On: 2022-06-23)

The United Kingdom’s Ambassador to the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), Neil Bush said Russia “miscalculated” in Ukraine on several counts,

In a statement, Bush said Russian forces had “underestimated” the Ukrainian people and the result of their aggression had been to “unite the free world in support of Ukraine”.

He said: “The Russian government has miscalculated in Ukraine on several counts. Firstly, they have underestimated the resolve and heroism of the Ukrainian people, who successfully defended their capital and forced Russian invaders into retreat.

“Secondly, they have underestimated the resolve of the international community; the result of this aggression has been to unite the free world in support of Ukraine, bolstering international cooperation and isolating Russia politically and economically.

“And finally, they have underestimated the strength of the principle of sovereignty in the 21st century; President Putin’s actions have only brought into sharper focus the right of all countries to determine their own foreign, defence and security policy.”
