Boris Johnson will fly out to Poland and Estonia for crisis talks over the escalating conflict in Ukraine, APA reports citing the Downing Street.

Downing Street confirmed the Prime Minister would visit the region on Tuesday for meetings with allies and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

The Russian offensive in Ukraine has entered its fifth day, with Vladimir Putin's forces targeting the capital Kyiv and major cities of Kharkiv and Chernihiv.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace warned the invasion was likely to become "more violent"as Russia resorts to more brutal tactics to advance.

He said the Russian handbook pointed to "ruthless, indiscriminate bombing of cities" with "high casualty levels" as Moscow's troops meet stubborn resistance.
