New U.K. PM makes his first call to Ukrainian President

Rishi Sunak, the newly appointed U.K. Prime Minister, Tuesday made his first call in the office to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and assured him of Britain’s “steadfast support,” according to NDTV, which referred to Downing Street.

“The Prime Minister said the United Kingdom’s support for Ukraine would be as strong as ever under his premiership, and President Zelensky could count on his Government to stand in continued solidarity,” Sunak’s spokeswoman was quoted as saying.

Following the phone conversation with Sunak, Zelensky, in his late-night address, said he believes the partnership between Ukraine and the U.K. and the “already traditional British leadership in the defense of democracy and freedom will be further strengthened.”

“Ukraine and Britain have achieved the best relations so far, but there is still potential to increase our cooperation to bring more benefits to our societies. I invited the Prime Minister to visit Ukraine.”
