UK pledges new military assistance for Ukraine after PM's surprise visit to Kyiv

AKIPRESS.COM - The UK is to send 120 armored vehicles and new anti-ship missile systems to Ukraine, Downing Street announced Saturday, after Prime Minister Boris Johnson paid an in-person visit to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, CNN reported.

Johnson and Austria's Chancellor Karl Nehammer made separate visits to Zelensky on Saturday.

A photograph tweeted by Ukraine's Embassy to the UK showed Johnson seated opposite Zelensky at a table in a pink and green stuccoed room. The post was captioned with the word "Surprise" and a winking face emoji.

The Press Service of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine said on its official Twitter account that the two leaders had held talks in Kyiv, posting several photographs of the pair's previously unannounced meeting.
