British Prime Minister Liz Truss had a phone conversation with President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Wednesday - they talked, in particular, about the so-called referendums in the occupied territories of Ukraine.
According to the head of state, he expects "London's leadership also in the reaction to the Russian pseudo-referendums": "The answer should be only the strengthening of military and financial support to Ukraine."
In turn, according to a report from the British side, Truss made it clear that London will never recognize Russia's attempts to annex sovereign territory, and "Ukraine can count on Great Britain's support until Putin is defeated."
The President of Ukraine thanked the British interlocutor for support, in particular within the framework of the UN General Assembly, and Truss thanked the Ukrainian side for facilitating the release of five British citizens from Russian captivity.
Zelenskiy and Truss also discussed how Kyiv and London can cooperate to ensure long-term gas supplies to Ukraine, and agreed to maintain contact in the near future.
