Foreign Affairs - A Heavyweight Business
North Thanet/ Herne Bay MP, Sir Roger Gale, has this week met with the Mayor of Kiev, heavyweight boxing champion Vitaly Klitschko, at the House of Commons to discuss the Russian threat to Ukraine.
The meeting was held in advance of a Commons debate on the UK relationship with the Ukraine during which Sir Roger called upon the Government and the European Union to help to support Ukraine, and its people, through what was going to be a long, hard winter.
Sir Roger has said:
"We face a very dangerous situation in Ukraine with the real possibility that a neo-Soviet Union is emerging. It is likely that the Russians will try to seize more territory in the east and to drive a land bridge via Mariupol through to Crimea.
