West ‘shouldn’t be afraid of escalation’ when supplying arms to Ukraine, says Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson insisted the West ‘shouldn’t be afraid of escalation when it comes to arms supply’ as he met Republicans in Washington on Tuesday to drum up more support for the Ukraine.

Some hardliners among Republicans, who took control of the House of Representatives earlier this year, have called for an end to US military and other aid to Ukraine.

In a statement, the former prime minister said, “I am here primarily to recognize and pay tribute to the immense contribution of the United States to the security of the Ukrainian people.

“My mission is to demonstrate that Ukraine will win – and that there is no conceivable reason to further delay support for Ukrainians to win this year. We should not fear an escalation in the provision of armaments.

Ukraine responds to Russia’s revenge bid, says Zelensky

Volodymyr Zelensky said his administration, military officials and the intelligence team were already responding to Moscow’s plans for revenge against Ukraine.

“Today, like every day, I held several meetings with the military and the head of intelligence. We are studying the situation in detail in all major operational departments and over the long term.

Foreign companies with property in the UK have until midnight to identify their ‘beneficial owners’ in a new public register – announced after Russia invaded Ukraine – aimed at cracking down on oligarchs and corrupt elites laundering “dirty money” in Britain.

But a Reuters analysis of government data found the people behind thousands of foreign companies owning UK property remain shrouded in secrecy, the news agency reports.

More than 19,000 foreign companies had disclosed ownership of British property by Tuesday morning in Britain, according to data from Companies House, which runs the new register. This represents about two-thirds of all foreign corporate owners, based on official land ownership records.

In addition, around a quarter of registered companies did not identify any individual owners, many of which disclosed entities in countries known for business secrecy, such as the British Virgin Islands or Panama. The guidelines define a “beneficial owner” as an individual or an entity.
