Georgia and the War in Ukraine (24 May 2022)

Alyn Smith: ...on the facts, there was extreme moral hazard, and that is why we are in the mess that we are today with Ukraine.

Looking back to when I was a young, fresh-faced soldier many years ago, I served on operations under NATO in both Bosnia and Kosovo, and I got to see the front end of what that looks like.

Ukraine (26 Apr 2022)

Luke Pollard: ...attacks on Odesa, Russian concentration on a land corridor along the Black sea, the risk of escalation—deliberate escalation—in Moldova and Transnistria, and the threats in the Caucasus, Bosnia and the Baltic states. That needs a clear plan from Ministers, and one that can be resourced, scrutinised and supported, because there is cross-party support for this. However, there are also...

Ukraine (26 Apr 2022)

Alyn Smith: ...the right hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy), about the risks in Moldova. A desperate Kremlin will use other fronts to try to foment discord, dissent and danger.

We have also seen victims of sexual violence in Bosnia and, more recently, as I have raised with the Minister, in Tigray and Myanmar. It is because of those heinous examples, and countless others, that rape and sexual violence have had to be...

Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) is beautifully elegant in his self-deprecating way, but...

Ukraine (15 Mar 2022)

Fleur Anderson: ...undertaken”, there needs to be “follow-up support”, and “move-on plans must be put in place”. I call on the Minister to tell us how the pairings will be made.

Thinking of war situations where women are leaving or seeing their sons, husbands and fathers being involved in fighting, 30 years ago last week the independent state of Bosnia was founded, having itself been subjected to significant wars. I am reminded of my regular visits to Srebrenica and the memorial at Potočari, which is lovingly maintained by bereaved...

Ben Wallace: ...an international community. We have all received emails from constituents who want to help, and I urge colleagues to channel them in the right direction. Some of us are old enough to remember the Bosnia war, and I know from soldiers who were on the ground that lots of well-meaning people drove out there and put at risk both themselves and the forces whose job it was to protect them. We...
