PM warns Vladimir Putin against ‘tragic mistake’ as tensions rise with Ukraine

Boris Johnson warned Vladimir Putin against making a “tragic mistake” as tensions rise on the border between Russia and Ukraine. The Prime Minister appearing at the Commons Liaison Committee, was asked about the problems between Belarus and Poland and the situation in Ukraine. Thousands of migrants, mainly from the Middle East, have been amassing at the Belarus border with Poland for months. Brussels has accused Belarus’s authoritarian president Alexander Lukashenko, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, of deliberately encouraging the migrants to breach its borders in retaliation for sanctions the EU has imposed in response to his repressive rule. Downing Street has also voiced concern about the build-up of Russian forces on Russia’s border with Ukraine. The Kremlin has dismissed claims that it is preparing to invade, after the Ukrainian defence ministry reported that around 90,000 Russian troops were massing in the area.

Russia is causing a great deal of alarm currently in Europe. It is causing concern on two fronts – Poland and Ukraine. The two cases are very different. Poland is part of NATO. This means that an attack on Poland is essentially an attack on all members of NATO and it could trigger a response from the entire alliance. Ukraine is not in NATO and is therefore more vulnerable. Putin has placed tens of thousands of troops and next to Ukraine’s broader. Eastern Ukraine was once part of the original territory of Magog – and therefore it is highly possible Putin will one day want to take it – Gog is “of Magog”. Britain is part of the king of the south power and therefore Boris Johnson warning Putin is effectively the king of the south warning the king of the north (Russia).

The Word of the Lord came to me saying,  “Son of man, look toward Gog of the land of Magog, the leader of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal, and speak against him. Tell him, ‘The Lord God says, “I am against you, O Gog, leader of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. (Ezekiel 38:1-3 NLT)

Eastern Ukraine was part of Magog – Putin wants it back!
