A TORY MP should not have travelled to Ukraine to witness the conflict first hand, Downing Street has said.

Gravesham MP Adam Holloway made an appearance on Nigel Farage’s show on GB News on Monday night.

The Tory admitted he had travelled to Poland before crossing the border into Ukraine.

Holloway, a member of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, told the programme that there were traffic jams for miles coming out of the country.

It comes as Downing Street said they were not aware of the actions of Holloway, but warned against any travel to Ukraine.

Holloway told Farage that he had visited a McDonald’s on the Polish border on Monday, and it was filled with people.

He said: "I woke up right on the Ukranian border in south-east Poland and I went to McDonald's. "The McDonald's near the border was packed with women and children and a few elderly people."

Holloway then said he "went up the road a couple of miles and I crossed over into Ukraine".

The MP, who served in the army for five years and used to sit on the commons Defence Select Committee, continued: "Then really quite extraordinary scenes of thousands of women and children queuing at the border - men separated, foreign men separated, some of them have been living in these corralled areas in the border posts for four days and nights in the cold."

Holloway described the scene at the Ukraine border as "the mother of all traffic jams", adding: "It went on for about 20 miles - I mean thousands and thousands and thousands of cars."

Asked whether he should have gone, the Prime Minister's official spokesman said: "I am not aware of that specific MP but our travel advice to everyone is against travel to Ukraine.”

Asked if he should come home, he added: “You should certainly not travel to Ukraine.”

It comes as Boris Johnson was confronted by a Ukrainian journalist over the lack of intervention from the West and refusal to put a no fly zone in place over Ukraine.

Daria Kaleniuk told the Prime Minister that “World War 3 has already started” and hit out at lacklustre sanctions directed at Russia.
