War with Ukraine ‘is not our style of life,’ says Russia’s ambassador to UK


The US President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have signalled that talks will continue in an attempt to calm tensions over Ukraine.

Around 100,000 Russian troops are massed at the Ukrainian border and President Biden has repeatedly warned of “severe consequences” if Moscow launches military action.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss also reassured Ukraine in talks today that the UK supports its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

We spoke to Russia’s Ambassador to the UK, Andrei Kelin, and began by asking what the 100,000 troops are doing near Ukraine’s border.
