Johnson doesn't think UK will end up at war with Russia

STORY: Asked if Britain was preparing for war with Russia, he told reporters at the G7 summit: "I don't think it will come to that and clearly we're working very hard to make sure that we confine this to Ukraine."

Johnson added that UK defence spending would have to "respond to the way the threats change."

Asked for his reaction to Monday's (June 27) missile strike on a crowded shopping centre in Kremenchuk, central Ukraine, Johnson said: "I think people are just shocked by what Putin is capable of doing. And if anything, it helped those of us who are making the case for helping to protect the Ukrainians to get that message across to some of those people who are more swing voters in the argument - they can see this is utter barbarism."
