I do, and the right hon. Lady paraphrases it very well. Those of us who look at history can look back at all sorts of conflicts and sometimes it is quite difficult to work out what the war aims were, but there is nothing complicated about this case.

This nation will always stand up for basic principles of international law and justice. That is why the Ukrainians find in us a staunch ally.
