LONDON (Sputnik) — The United Kingdom is not planning to send arms to Kiev, the leader of UK parliament's lower chamber, William Hague, told the BBC in an interview on Sunday.
"We are not planning, as the UK, to send arms to Ukraine. It has not been our approach in any of the recent conflicts in recent years to send arms into those conflicts," Hague, also former Foreign Secretary, said.
Hague added that Britain wants to see a diplomatic resolution of the conflict, and stressed that "if Russia continues to destabilize Ukraine, there will be a continuing [economic] price.”
The United States and the European Union have introduced several rounds of economic sanctions against Russia, accusing the country of meddling in Ukrainian conflict, a claim Moscow has repeatedly denied as groundless.
