LONDON – Britain’s foreign minister Liz Truss on Tuesday said she would visit Ukraine next week, as she reiterated a warning to Russia that any incursion into Ukrainian territory would come at a severe economic cost.

“I’ll be visiting Ukraine next week,” Truss told parliament.

“A further military incursion by Russia into Ukraine would be a massive strategic mistake and come with a severe cost on Russia’s economy, including coordinated sanctions.”
