David Cameron Visits Ukraine to Pledge Continued Support

Foreign Secretary David Cameron made his first visit to Ukraine, meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in Kyiv. During this trip, Cameron reiterated the commitment of the United Kingdom to offering unwavering support to Ukraine, both diplomatically and economically, while prioritizing military assistance in light of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.

In a video shared by President Zelenskiy, Cameron emphasized the UK’s dedication: “What I want to say by being here is we will continue to give you the moral support, the diplomatic support, the economic support, but above all the military support that you need, not just this year, and next year, but however long it takes.”

Cameron also mentioned his previous disagreements with his “friend,” former Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and highlighted Johnson’s support for Ukraine as the “finest thing.” He emphasized the importance of the meeting with President Zelenskiy to ensure that attention remains focused on Ukraine.

President Zelenskiy expressed gratitude for the ongoing support, stating, “Now you know the world is not focused on the situation on our battlefield in Ukraine and its dividing focus really doesn’t help, and we are thankful that you always supported Ukraine.”

Determined Collaboration for Victory

During the talks, UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron and his Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba, reaffirmed the determination of both nations to work collaboratively towards victory.

Kuleba asserted, “The UK remains steadfast in providing Ukraine with weapons, increasing their co-production, and ridding the Black Sea of Russian threats.” These statements underline the commitment of both countries to bilateral cooperation.

Security Measures and Timing

It is important to note that the Ukrainian statements did not specify the precise timing of the talks between President Zelenskiy and Foreign Secretary Cameron. Strict security measures due to the ongoing war often require the delayed release of details pertaining to visits by foreign dignitaries.

Nevertheless, the meeting between Cameron and President Zelenskiy demonstrates the solid ties between the United Kingdom and Ukraine. The United Kingdom stands firm in supporting Ukraine’s fight to ensure its sovereignty and territorial integrity.
