Former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv on Jan. 22, the President's Office reported on Telegram.
Zelenskyy met the guest near his office. The ex-PM said he was honored to visit the capital of Ukraine and greeted ministers and presidential officials.
The Presidential Office reported they had discussed practical steps Johnson could take to help Ukraine, in particular preparations for a "peace summit". The president stressed that NATO membership would be the best option for Ukraine and it's "important to actively push the idea."
Johnson was also briefed on the situation at the front line.
"Additional mobilization will not help Russia, its army is not motivated,” Zelenskyy said.
“However, we need more weapons: tanks, aircraft, long-range missiles.”
Before the meeting with Zelenskyy, Johnson visited Bucha and Borodyanka, formerly occupied Kyiv suburbs that suffered war crimes and atrocities during their occupation.
