Britain will not impose sanctions or support military action against Russia, according to a briefing paper that was revealed in error yesterday.
The document became public when one of David Cameron’s advisers left it on display to press photographers before a Downing Street meeting.
The blunder by Hugh Powell, who is deputy national security adviser, also shows that the Government has no plans to freeze Russian investors out of the City of London.
Instead, the briefing paper recommends that the UN should take the lead and possibly send monitors to Ukraine.
The document says: ‘UK should not support for now, trade sanctions … or close London’s financial centre to Russians.’
