President Volodymyr Zelensky Visits U.K. Ahead of Expected Russian Offensive

HeadlineFeb 08, 2023

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is in Britain on a rare trip abroad, where he is meeting with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and King Charles. Zelensky will also address the U.K. Parliament. Britain, which announced new sanctions against Russia today, has provided military equipment and training to Ukraine in its efforts to counter Russia’s invasion. Zelensky’s visit comes as Russia seems poised to launch a major offensive in the east and as the war approaches its one-year mark.

Meanwhile, President Biden is expected to travel to Poland for the February 24 anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
