Johnson became one of the first foreign politicians to visit Kyiv after Ukrainian forces repelled a Russian attack on Kyiv and to meet President Volodymyr Zelensky in person.

The Ukrainian leader thanked the British government and Prime Minister Johnson for increasing sanctions on Russia and boosting Ukraine’s defense capabilities, according to Ukraine’s Interfax agency.

Other Western democracies should follow the example of Great Britain. It’s time for a complete ban on Russian energy carriers, to increase the number of weapons delivered to us

Zelensky said at a press conference.

The UK will supply Ukraine with 120 armored vehicles and anti-ship missiles. Boris Johnson also announced an increase in British loan guarantees to Ukraine by another $500 million.
