Could Be the Biggest War in Europe Since 1945: UK PM

The United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that if Russia 'invades' Ukraine, it could be the biggest war in Europe since 1945.

"All the signs are that the plan has already in some senses, already begun.... it could be the biggest war in Europe since 1945 in terms of sheer scale. He (Putin) has got everybody fixated on this question but no he hasn't (won already). What we don't want to see is a violent invasion which would take away one of the most important gains of my life time - a Europe whole and free."
