Deutsche Welle examines why a top British politician has warned Russia it could become isolated internationally.

Britain has also echoed those views: “We have to step up the pressure on Assad’s regime through sanctions and on the Russians through sanctions,” UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told lawmakers on Tuesday.

Johnson also said that Russia could risk becoming a pariah nation if it continued to bomb civilian targets. He also stressed that international powers needed to do more to punish Moscow with sanctions.

“If Russia continues on its current path then I think that great country is in danger of becoming a pariah nation,” Johnson told the House of Commons, Britain’s lower house of parliament.
