Ukraine’s territorial integrity ‘not negotiable’, says Olaf Scholz after Zelenskiy meeting – live updates | World news

Must read

The comments by James Heappey, the UK’s armed forces minister, to the BBC that Europe is closer to war than it has been for 70 years will be baffling to a number of countries that have seen full-blown conflicts in the past seven decades, as the victims of Soviet aggression.

Among the wars that have occurred since the second world war are the wars in the Balkans in the 1990s, including the wars in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo, and the conflict in Cyprus – which saw a Turkish invasion in 1974 following a Greek Cypriot coup.

The large-scale interventions by Soviet forces in Hungary in 1956 and by Warsaw Pact forces in Czechoslovakia in 1968 both provoked large numbers of people to flee their respective countries.

Perhaps most puzzling of all is that Heapey seems to be discounting the war that has been ongoing in Ukraine for the past eight years.
