United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Saturday that the West must be united in conveying to Russian President Vldimir Putin that he would pay a "high price" if he decided to invade Ukraine.

"The message I am taking to the Munich Security Conference today is that allies must speak with one voice to stress to President Putin the high price he will pay for any further Russian invasion of Ukraine," Johnson said in a message from his plane to Munich. "We need western solidarity to avoid unnecessary bloodshed. Diplomacy can still prevail," he added.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's office said he will meet Johnson in Munich later in the day to discuss the latest developments in the region.
