The Government of the United Kingdom has published a Comprehensive Strategy on Defense, Diplomacy and International Development.
This thorough document sets out the priorities of national security and international policy of the United Kingdom until 2025.
In particular, it refers to our commitment to continue cooperation with Ukraine in order to strengthen its Armed Forces, as well as our strong support for the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission.
Britain respects the people, culture and history of Russia. However, until relations with his government improve, we will actively deter and protect ourselves from the full range of threats emanating from Russia. Through NATO, we will ensure a united response from the West, combining our military, diplomatic and intelligence means to maintain collective security. We will adhere to international norms and norms and hold Russia accountable for violating them, working with our international partners, as was done after the Salisbury attack.
We will also support others in the Eastern European neighborhood and beyond to strengthen their resilience to state threats. This includes Ukraine, where we will continue to build the capacity of its armed forces.
Put diplomacy at the center of international efforts to counter state threats, build international coalitions to end and respond to state threats, including through sanctions. We will also provide diplomatic and expert support to multilateral organizations that adhere to international security standards, such as NATO, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the Council of Europe. This will include strong support for the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine and the Council of Europe’s attribution of Russia’s hostile and destabilizing activities
