Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and UK PM Rishi Sunak discussed London’s military assistance to Ukraine during the coming winter, Zelenskyy said in a Twitter post on Nov. 10.
“I had a phone call with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak,” Zelenskyy said.
“We discussed multifaceted UK military support for Ukraine and assistance in enduring the winter season. We also spoke in favor of the continuation of the ‘grain deal’ and coordinated our positions on the eve of important international events.”
On Nov. 9, the UK said it would provide Ukraine with a further 1,000 surface-to-air missiles. They should help counter Russian attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.
Furthermore, London has pledged to provide the Ukrainian military with more cold weather gear, enabling it to effectively fight against invading Russian troops throughout the winter.
The UK has been in the forefront of international support for Ukraine’s fight against the Russian invasion, providing both military and economic assistance to the country, and training thousands of Ukrainian soldiers on its shores.
Former PM Boris Johnson visited Kyiv on three occasions since Moscow’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Recent media reports suggested a visit to Kyiv by UK PM Rishi Sunak is in the works.
