Johnson: 'Tougher sanctions' if Russia attacks

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned Russia that if it persists in its actions against Ukraine, "any attack on its neighbor will be followed by tougher sanctions."

"We in the UK will not hesitate to toughen our national sanctions against Russia in response to whatever President (Vladimir) Putin may do, and the House (of Commons) will soon hear more on this," said the prime minister during a session in Parliament.

Besides, he asserted that further steps will follow any offensive action against Ukraine, and NATO's presence will be increased to protect allies.
