Alexander Haig: We are trying to de-escalise a war.
Margaret Thatcher: So am I. But you do not do it by appeasement. You increase its chances. You see this table? This was where Neville Chamberlain sat in 1938 when he spoke on the wireless about the Czechs as "far away people about whom we know nothing and with whom we have so little in common". Munich! Appeasement! A world war followed because of that irresponsible, woolly-minded, indecisive, slip-shod attitude and the deaths of 45 million people.

Sanctions would have never been placed if Russia had not invaded / occupied parts of Ukraine.
The sanctions are a direct result of Russian action and not a catalyst of Russian action.
However giving into russia demands while they constantly threaten the use of nukes is a dangerous precedent to set.
