British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is planning to make a final trip to Ukraine before he retires, The Telegraph reported on Monday.
"Boris Johnson is planning a final trip to see Volodymyr Zelensky in Ukraine before leaving Downing Street," the statement read. Johnson has already visited Ukraine twice following the Russian war.
On Saturday, the Prime Minister posted a video on Twitter, in which he was seen trained by the British Armed Forces in North Yorkshire. He also stressed that the "UK is committed to doing all we can to help Ukraine continue to repel Russian aggression."
Earlier this month, Zelenskyy had a phone conversation with Johnson to express his “sadness” over the British leader’s resignation as Conservative Party leader.
“We all welcome this news with sadness. Not only me, but also all of Ukrainian society which sympathises with you a lot,” the Presidential Office quoted Zelenskyy as saying.
Moreover, Zelenskyy stressed how grateful Ukrainians were for Johnson’s support since the Russian invasion
Johnson stepped down, paving the way for a new prime minister following an avalanche of resignations by members of his party that eroded his authority and paralyzed the British government.
Speaking to a crowd of supporters and onlookers at the lectern outside 10 Downing Street, the British leader stated: “It is clearly now the will of the Parliament Conservative Party that there should be a new leader of that party and therefore a new prime minister.”
