Johnson meets Zelenskyy in Kyiv in surprise visit

London, Apr 9 (EFE).- British prime minister Boris Johnson met with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy during an unannounced visit to Kyiv, according to the Ukrainian Embassy in the United Kingdom on Saturday.

The diplomatic mission released a photograph of the two leaders sitting across from each other in an office, next to the flags of both countries, with the caption: “Surprise.”

Downing Street confirmed the meeting in the Ukrainian capital, a day after the United Kingdom announced the shipment of new military equipment worth 100 million pounds (120 million euros).

A spokesman for the Prime Minister said that the trip represents a “show of solidarity” with the Ukrainians and that the two leaders met to discuss “long-term support for Ukraine”.

The British Prime Minister had last been in Kyiv on February 2, weeks before the Russian invasion began, when he held a joint press conference with Zelenskyy. EFE
