The UK government has defended its decision to not enforce a no fly zone, with some experts warning the move could lead to “world war three”.

Cabinet minister Ben Wallace said Britain has been at the forefront of trying to get Ukraine into NATO, which needs all 30 nations’ support.

He added: “I’m afraid I’m not going to sit here and say I’m going to put at risk the rest of Europe by triggering a major, potentially, war across the whole continent.

“People who suggest a no fly zone should be really clear what they’re trying to achieve and how it will be enforced. Because I don’t see them actually coming up with any logical details behind it…

“It will favor the force with the huge armed forces, Russia, as they will be able continue regardless”.
