Ukraine-Russia war LIVE – UK to send MORE weapons to Zelensky’s troops as he calls for meeting with Putin ‘to end war’
THE UK is set to provide Ukraine with more military equipment, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a phone conversation with President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Boris Johnson told Mr Zelensky more armoured vehicles, drones and anti-tank weapons would be sent to Ukraine, a Downing Street spokesman said.
The No 10 spokesman said this was a demonstration of “our support and solidarity with the Ukrainian people“.
“I think that whoever started this war will be able to end it,” he told a news conference at a metro station in the heart of the Ukrainian capital.
He was “not afraid to meet” Putin if it would lead to a peace deal between Russia and Ukraine, he added.
“From the beginning, I have insisted on talks with the Russian president,” said Zelensky.
“It’s not that I want (to meet him), it’s that I have to meet him so as to settle this conflict by diplomatic means. We have confidence in our partners, but we have no confidence in Russia,” he added.
