President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a phone conversation with Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson.

Given Boris Johnson’s announcement of resignation as leader of the Conservative Party, the President of Ukraine expressed sincere gratitude to the Prime Minister for his decisive and uncompromising support for Ukraine from the very first days of full-scale Russian aggression, as well as for his leadership in defending Ukraine’s interests in the international arena.

“We all heard this news with sadness. Not only me, but also the entire Ukrainian society, which is very sympathetic to you. My entire Office and all Ukrainians are grateful to you for your help. We have no doubt that Great Britain’s support will be preserved, but your personal leadership and charisma made it special,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.

The Head of State also informed the interlocutor about the developments on the front.

The current state and prospects of Ukrainian-British cooperation were discussed. The parties paid special attention to the issues of defense cooperation and political support of Ukraine. Another key topic of the negotiations was the unblocking of grain exports from Ukrainian ports.
