US President Joe Biden said he: "Condemned this unprovoked and unjustified attack by Russian military forces". UN's Secretary-General, António Guterres, said to Vladimir Putin :"In the name of humanity, bring your troops back."

Liz Truss said: "I have summoned the Russian ambassador to meet me and explain Russia’s illegal, unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. We will be imposing severe sanctions and rallying countries in support of Ukraine."

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the attack as "a catastrophe" for Europe.

The MP also said in a tweet:"I strongly condemn the appalling, unprovoked attack President Putin has launched on the people of Ukraine.

"We stand with Ukraine and we will work with our international partners to respond to this terrible act of aggression."

This comes after the MP went to Moscow last week to enter talks with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavov.

She said last week prior to the meeting:"In Moscow to meet Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and make clear that Russia must immediately withdraw its forces and respect Ukraine’s sovereignty or face severe consequences."
