Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has urged Britons not to travel to Ukraine to join the fighting as he said the ‘very dangerous’ situation could lead to them being killed.

Mr Wallace said he did not ‘want to see British people killed any more than I want to see Ukrainians’ dying after Cabinet colleague Liz Truss said she would ‘absolutely‘ support British nationals who chose to go to help fight against the Russian invasion.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has announced the formation of a new ‘international legion’ to help defend his country and appealed to foreign volunteers to come forward, promising them arms to fight against the Russian troops.

Asked on the BBC’s Sunday Morning programme if she would support UK citizens who chose to answer the call, Foreign Secretary Ms Truss said: ‘That is something people can make their own decisions about.

‘The people of Ukraine are fighting for freedom and democracy, not just for Ukraine but for the whole of Europe.
