(PM Boris Johnson, speaking during his visit to Ukraine this week, during which he discussed with President Zelenskyy a proposed training scheme for the Ukrainian armed forces which the IK is proposing to help set up. 

Downing Street said the UK-led training scheme would have the potential to train up to 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers every 120 days and would allow them to "accelerate their deployment, rebuild their forces and scale-up their resistance".

Soldiers would learn "battle-winning skills for the front line, as well as basic medical training, cyber-security and counter explosive tactics".

President Zelenskyy, in a message posted on his Telegram account, said: 

"Many days of this war have proved that Great Britain's support for Ukraine is firm and resolute.

"Glad to see our country's great friend Boris Johnson in Kyiv again.")
