SCHLOSS ELMAU, Germany (Reuters) - World leaders must recognise the price of supporting Ukraine including the surge in energy and food costs but must also acknowledge that the price of allowing Russia to win would be far higher, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.

Speaking at the start of a Group of Seven summit on Sunday, Johnson said the West needed to maintain its unity in the face of Moscow's aggression.

"In order to protect that unity, in order to make it work, you've got to have really, really honest discussions about the implications of what's going on, the pressures that individual friends and partners are feeling," he told reporters.

"But the price of backing down, the price of allowing (Russian President Vladimir) Putin to succeed, to hack off huge parts of Ukraine, to continue with his programme of conquest, that price will be far, far higher. Everybody here understands that."

The cost that 55 million Ukrainians and 7 billion people across the globe are paying is too high - high time, a sincere attempt to solve the issues is made

absolutely right but Russia won't concede anything now and they are adamant. until Russia chooses to end the war, it's going to go on.

In other words, western governments have walked themselves into a no win situation, by allowing Russia to be provoked, and then getting involved. Double fail!

Exactly!! Russian sanctions are hurting the public, plus China tariffs driving up inflation.
