British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Meets with Zelensky in Kyiv

HeadlineApr 11, 2022

On Saturday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson made a surprise trip to Kyiv, where he met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson: “And together with our partners, we are going to ratchet up the economic pressure, and we will continue to intensify, week by week, the sanctions on Russia, not just freezing assets in banks and sanctioning oligarchs but moving away from use of Russian hydrocarbons. And we will give you the support that you need, the economic support but also, of course, the defensive military support, in which I am proud to say that the U.K. helped to lead the way.”
