President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky met in Kyiv with Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labour Party and the Official Opposition of Great Britain.

"One of our priorities today is further strengthening support for Ukraine from our partners and allies with Great Britain as one of the key allies. That is why the visit of Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labour Party and the Official Opposition of Great Britain, is very important," Zelensky posted on Telegram.

The situation on the front line and possible developments in the coming months, sanctions, confiscation of Russian assets and their use to reconstruct Ukraine, and the creation of a special tribunal to prosecute Russia for its crime of aggression against Ukraine were discussed during the meeting.

"It is necessary to ensure justice. Ukrainians who lost their relatives are waiting for it," the President emphasized.

As the press service of the President’s Office informs, the President of Ukraine expressed gratitude for the warm welcome during his visit to the UK, as well as for the opportunity to address British lawmakers.

"I was overwhelmed by the way I was received. I thank the parliament, the government, and all the British people for the support your country is giving us in these difficult times," he said.

The President also praised the leading security assistance provided to Ukraine by the United Kingdom and stressed that our country's priorities today are to obtain fighter aircraft and long-range weapons.
