British Prime Minister, Conservative Rishi Sunak, met Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv this Saturday (11.19.2022) in his first visit to Ukraine since taking office on 25 October.
In a video on his Twitter account, Chunak can be seen greeting political and military representatives after being greeted by Zelensky, with whom he sat opposite each other at a table and had an interview. “The United Kingdom knows what it means to fight for freedom. We are with you until the end,” a message posted on the social media site in English and Ukrainian said. To which Zelensky replied: “With friends like you on our side, we believe in ourselves
success “Our two countries know what it means to defend freedom,” Zelensky tweeted.
A spokesman for Downing Street, the official residence of the head of the British government in London, confirmed that Sunak had traveled to Kyiv to inform Zelensky of the “continuation of the United Kingdom’s support” for Ukraine.
Before Rishi Sunak, former prime minister Boris Johnson led the European response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, a mandate maintained by his successor Liz Truss, who was in office for just 44 days.
