Rishi Sunak meets President Zelensky in first Ukraine visit
Rishi Sunak has met with Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky in his first visit to Kyiv since becoming Prime Minister.
“We discussed the most important issues both for our countries and for global security,” Mr Zelensky wrote on Telegram following the meeting earlier today.
“We are stronger and we will achieve the desired results,” he added.
Meanwhile, Sunak tweeted that Britain “knows what it means to fight for freedom”.
It comes after the UK agreed to provide a £50m air defence package for Ukraine, including anti-aircraft guns and technology to counter Iranian-supplied drones.
“We are today providing new air defence, including anti-aircraft guns, radar and anti-drone equipment, and stepping up humanitarian support for the cold, hard winter ahead,” Sunak said in an accompanying statement.
Ukraine’s Deputy Defence Minister Volodymyr Havrylov visited the UK last week to discuss the ongoing war efforts.
