Boris Johnson has offered strategic support to Ukraine, on a surprise visit to Kyiv on Friday (17 June).

The prime minister said that the UK would be with Ukraine until the nation "ultimately prevails"

"I have offered President Zelensky a major new military training programme that could change the equation of this war," Johnson said.

Johnson and Zelensky's meeting comes a day after the Ukrainian president was visited by French president Emmanuel Macron, German chancellor Olaf Scholz and Italian PM Mario Draghi.
