Work is underway in the UK to provide further equipment in the coming weeks and months to secure Ukraine's victory on the battlefield, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a phone conversation this afternoon.
"The leaders discussed the abhorrent drone attacks on Ukraine in recent days, and the Prime Minister said the thoughts of the UK were with the Ukrainian people as they continued to live under such bombardment," the UK Government website said. "The Prime Minister said Ukraine could count on the UK to continue to support it for the long term, as demonstrated by the recent delivery of more than 1,000 anti-air missiles."
Discussing the Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF) summit in Latvia last month, the Prime Minister thanked the President for joining virtually and said the UK and JEF partners were working closely to provide the vital equipment requested.
The leaders agreed to stay in close touch in the coming weeks.
