King Charles III on Friday marked the first anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by condemning the “unprovoked full-scale attack” on the country and declaring the world stood “united”.

“It has now been a year that the people of Ukraine have suffered unimaginably from an unprovoked full-scale attack on their nation.

“The world has watched in horror at all the unnecessary┬ásuffering. Together, we stand united,” the British monarch said in an unusually forthright statement issued by Buckingham Palace.
