Prime Minister Speaks to Ukrainian President

Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, has spoken today to Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine. They discussed matters of interest to the two nations, including Brexit, Russia and international security.

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister said in a statement:

“President Zelenskyy thanked the Prime Minister for his unwavering and unflinching support for the people and territorial integrity of Ukraine. The Prime Minister reiterated that he would not yield on the issue of Ukrainian sovereignty, and gave his full support to President Zelenskyy in his efforts to end the conflict in the Donbas.

The Prime Minister underlined his message in Berlin yesterday: Russia’s readmission to the G7 and to the wider international community should not be considered until they have stopped their destabilising behaviour. He pointed to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and last year’s chemical attack on the streets of Salisbury as clear examples.”
