英國首相关于俄罗斯入侵乌克兰的全国讲话:2022 年 2 月 24 日

今天凌晨 4 点刚过,我与乌克兰总统泽连斯基通话,表示英国将继续提供支持,

因为我们最担心的事情现在已经成真,我们所有的警告都被证明是准确的。

俄罗斯总统普京在我们的欧洲大陆发动了战争。他在没有任何挑衅和任何可信借口的情况下袭击了一个友好国家。

无数的导弹和炸弹向完全无辜的民众倾泻而下。

一场大规模的入侵正在陆上、海上和空中进行。

这并不是一个臭名昭著的短语“某个我们知之甚少的遥远国家”。

在这个国家我们有乌克兰朋友;邻居、同事。

乌克兰是一个几十年来享有自由和民主以及选择自己命运的权利的国家。

我们——以及全世界——不能让这种自由就这样被扼杀。我们不能也不会袖手旁观。

正是因为近几个月来我们对俄罗斯的恐吓如此警惕,英国才成为欧洲首批向乌克兰提供防御性武器的国家之一。

其他盟国现在也做了同样的事情,我们将在未来的日子里做更多的事情。

今天,我们将与我们的盟友一道,就一揽子大规模经济制裁达成一致,旨在及时打击俄罗斯经济。

为了实现这一目标,我们还必须集体停止对俄罗斯石油和天然气的依赖,这种依赖让普京掌控西方政治太久了。

我们的使命很明确。

从外交上、政治上、经济上——最终在军事上——弗拉基米尔•普京(Vladimir Putin)的这种可怕而野蛮的冒险必须以失败告终。

所以我要对俄罗斯人民说,他们的总统刚刚授权了一场针对斯拉夫民族的暴力浪潮。

那些将失去生命的俄罗斯士兵的父母。

我无法相信这是以你的名义做的,或者你真的想要它给普京政权带来的贱民地位。

在这痛苦的时刻,我要对乌克兰人民说。

我们与你们同在,我们为你们和你们的家人祈祷。

我们站在你们这边。

如果未来的几个月是严峻的,自由的火焰变得微弱。

我知道它将在乌克兰再次闪耀。

因为尽管他有炸弹、坦克和导弹,我不相信这个俄罗斯独裁者将永远压制乌克兰人的民族情感,以及他们对自己国家应该自由的热情信念。

我也要对英国人民和所有听到普京对那些站在乌克兰一边的人发出威胁的人说。

我们当然会尽一切努力保卫国家安全。

世界各地的朋友和盟友都和我们同样的愤慨。

我们将与他们合作- -无论需要多长时间- -以确保恢复乌克兰的主权和独立。

因为这种肆无忌惮、不计后果的侵略行为不仅是对乌克兰的攻击。

这是对东欧和世界各地民主和自由的攻击。

这场危机关乎自由、主权独立的欧洲人民选择自己未来的权利。

这是英国将永远捍卫的权利。

——英国首相,鲍里斯·约翰逊

Shortly after 4 o’ clock this morning I spoke to president Zelenskyy of Ukraine to offer the continued support of the UK

because our worst fears have now come true and all our warnings have proved tragically accurate

President Putin of Russia has unleashed war in our European continent. He has attacked a friendly country without any provocation and without any credible excuse

Innumerable missiles and bombs have been raining down on an entirely innocent population

A vast invasion is underway by land by sea and by air.

And this is not in the infamous phrase some faraway country of which we know little

We have Ukrainian friends in this country; neighbours, co-workers

Ukraine is a country that for decades has enjoyed freedom and democracy and the right to choose its own destiny

We – and the world – cannot allow that freedom just to be snuffed out. We cannot and will not just look away.

It is because we have been so alarmed in recent months at the Russian intimidation that the UK became one of the first countries in Europe to send defensive weaponry to help the Ukrainians

Other allies have now done the same and we will do what more we can in the days ahead

Today in concert with our allies we will agree a massive package of economic sanctions designed in time to hobble the Russian economy

And to that end we must also collectively cease the dependence on Russian oil and gas that for too long has given Putin his grip on western politics

Our mission is clear

Diplomatically, politically, economically – and eventually, militarily – this hideous and barbaric venture of Vladimir Putin must end in failure

And so I say to the people of Russia, whose president has just authorised a tidal wave of violence against a fellow Slavic people

The parents of Russian soldiers who will lose their lives.

I cannot believe this is being done in your name or that you really want the pariah status it will bring to the Putin regime

and I say to the Ukrainians in this moment of agony

we are with you we are praying for you and your families

and we are on your side

And if the months ahead are grim, and the flame of freedom burns low

I know that it will blaze bright again in Ukraine

because for all his bombs and tanks and missiles I don’t believe that the Russian dictator will ever subdue the national feeling of the Ukrainians and their passionate belief that their country should be free

and I say to the British people and all who have heard the threats from Putin against those who stand with Ukraine

we will of course do everything to keep our country safe

We are joined in our outrage by friends and allies around the world

We will work with them – for however long it takes – to ensure that the sovereignty and independence of Ukraine is restored

because this act of wanton and reckless aggression is an attack not just on Ukraine

It is an attack on democracy and freedom in East Europe and around the world

This crisis is about the right of a free, sovereign independent European people to choose their own future

and that is a right that the UK will always defend.
