- Following the Prime Minister’s visit to Kyiv, we remain humbled by President Zelenskyy’s strength and resolve as Ukraine prepares for a further Russian onslaught in the East of Ukraine.
- The Prime Minister and President Biden agreed to continue bolstering military and economic support for Ukraine, including through our new package of anti-ship missiles and military vehicles, and working with our international allies to apply joint economic pressure on Putin and to end reliance on Russian oil and gas.
