This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 61%. (I’m a bot)
Relations between Russian president Vladimir Putin and the West are beyond repair following his invasion of Ukraine, Boris Johnson has said.
The prime minister said he “Cannot see for the life of me” how relations with Putin could be “Renormalised”.
Asked by LBC if Putin could ever be welcomed back on the global stage if he repents, the prime minister said: “Nothing is impossible, I suppose – but I just cannot see for the life of me how we can renormalise relations with Putin now.”He [Putin] has grossly violated human rights, international law; he’s guilty of absolutely barbaric onslaught on a totally innocent country – and to renormalise would be to make the mistake we made in 2014.”.
