Nick Thomas-Symonds joined colleagues from across the House of Commons in signing the Book of Solidarity with the people of Ukraine as they bravely resist Putin’s unprovoked ad illegal invasion. The signed Book of Solidarity will be sent to Ruslan Stefanchuk, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, Parliament of Ukraine.
The Torfaen MP has called for the hardest possible sanctions to be taken against all those linked to Putin and against the Russian government’s interests.
Labour has welcomed the move from the UK, EU, and US to disconnect some Russian banks from Swift, but have urged the UK Government to go further to cut Putin’s rogue regime out of our financial system, as well as move quicker on widening export controls, and targeting the energy sector.
Nick Thomas-Symonds said: “The people of Ukraine have shown immense bravery and resilience in the face of Putin’s attack, and I am pleased I could be able to send my full solidarity on behalf of the people of Torfaen.
We must do all we can to support Ukraine to defend itself and provide a simple sanctuary route to UK for all who need it.’
