"We've seen the Ukrainians continue to push back against the Russian offensive. And I think he didn't anticipate the strength of reaction from the free world."

The UK leader added that the West should not heed Moscow's "bogus threats," continuing its support of Ukraine, instead.

"If Putin is allowed to succeed, this wouldn't just send a terrible message in Europe, and of course huge threats to the Ukrainian population themselves, but it also would send a message to other authoritarian regimes around the world that it's somehow acceptable… to invade a sovereign nation," she said.

During her recent speech at the UN General Assembly, Truss vowed to keep UK security assistance to Ukraine at current levels or ramp it up even further, adding that London "won't rest" until Ukraine emerges victorious in the war.
