Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky is back on the western PR circuit.
On Wednesday he visited the parliament in London as well as Buckingham palace, as the UK announced its plans to increase its deliveries of lethal aid to Ukraine.
The visit was Zelensky’s second known international trip since the Russian conflict began almost a year ago. Zelensky and UK prime minister Rishi Sunak were expected to discuss what the United Kingdom’s described as its “two-pronged” approach to aiding Ukraine, which included a “surge” in the supply of military equipment and long-term support with training for troops.
About 10 thousand Ukrainian troops have been trained in the United Kingdom in the last six months. More than 20 thousand additional troops are expected to be trained this year.
