United Nations, September 21 (EFE) .- British Prime Minister Liz Truss promised on Wednesday at the United Nations that her country will send more weapons to Ukraine and will continue to do so until Russia is defeated.

“Ukrainians are not just defending their own country, they are defending our values ​​and the security of all,” Truss said in his first major speech at an international forum at the United Nations General Assembly.

The new head of the British government has assured that he will maintain or increase military aid to Ukraine “for as long as it takes”.

“As Ukraine talks, new weapons are coming to Ukraine from the UK,” said Truss, who insisted his country would not rest “until Ukraine is won”.

The conservative leader responded to the mobilization of reserves ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin and his threats to use nuclear weapons by assuring that the Kremlin was “trying to justify its catastrophic failure.”

Truss’ political project

Truss took the opportunity to present his political project to the world, promising economic growth a high priority and tax cuts.

“We want people to keep more of the money they earn, so they have more control over their own lives and can contribute to the future,” he said.

As he said, his aim is to give Britons “the progress they expect” and “lead a new United Kingdom for a new era”, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of Charles III.

“We want this era to be one of hope and progress, where we uphold the values ​​of individual freedom, self-determination and equality before the law,” he explained.
