Ukraine has defied the odds and pushed back Russian forces from the gates of Kyiv, achieving the most remarkable feat of arms of the 21st century, said Johnson.

Because of President Zelenskyy’s committed leadership and the invincible heroism and courage of the Ukrainian people, Putin’s monstrous aims are being thwarted.

Today, I made clear that the United Kingdom stands unwaveringly with them in this ongoing fight, and we are in it for the long run.

He added, we are stepping up our own military and economic support and convening a global alliance to bring this tragedy to an end and ensure Ukraine survives and thrives as a free and sovereign nation.

The latest supply of military equipment to Ukraine is in addition to 100 million pounds worth of high-grade military equipment announced on Friday, including more Starstreak anti-aircraft missiles, another 800 anti-tank missiles, and high-tech loitering munitions for precision strikes.

The UK Prime Minister also confirmed further economic support, guaranteeing an additional USD 500 million in World Bank lending to Ukraine, taking our total loan guarantee to up to USD 1 billion.
