A statement by a government official at a presser is about as authoritative as a Tweet from the PM.It would if the headline of the article actually was based on fact. I'm afraid it's a bit off. There's no direct "paving the way" but more a bit of "wink-wink; nudge-nudge; say no more".
Woe be to the test case who ends up in the gulag after Ukraine falls and hopes he will get help from our government. They would be asking for more than the government is willing to give.
