Sunak meets Zelensky during first visit to Ukraine

Rishi Sunak said he was “humbled” to be in Ukraine, as the Prime Minister held his first face-to-face meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky. The visit came as the Prime Minister, in office only a matter of weeks, pledged continued British support to the war-torn country in the fight against Russia. Mr Sunak’s arrival was accompanied by the announcement of a £50 million package of defence aid comprising 125 anti-aircraft guns and technology to help Ukraine counter Iranian-supplied drones.
