We continue to develop our strategic partnership: we discussed the supply of weapons, preparations for the heating season and the recovery of Ukraine. In particular, Britain is ready to provide financial support to Ukraine for the purchase of gas and to promote the involvement of British businesses in the development of the Ukrainian field of gas production," he said.
