UKIP MEP William Dartmouth has accused the government of using "dunce's diplomacy" over the situation in Ukraine.
William Dartmouth said: “What Putin has done is wrong but the West has played a terrible hand. Nobody should ever ask William Hague to play poker on their behalf, that’s for sure.
“The EU encouraged Western Ukrainians to think a future as a member state and large net recipient of funds was beckoning. The population then toppled a legitimate president.
