British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy visited a military base in southwest England on Wednesday to meet Ukrainian troops training with Challenger 2 tanks that will be delivered to Ukraine's front lines.
Ukrainian President Zelenskyy flew to London on Wednesday to thank the British people for their support in fending off Russia’s nearly yearlong invasion of his country and predicted that Ukraine would win the war.
“We know freedom will win, we know Russia will lose,” Zelenskyy told the British Parliament. “We know the victory will change the world, and this will be the change that the world has long needed. The United Kingdom is marching with us towards the most important victory of our lifetime.”
Zelenskyy also met with King Charles at Buckingham Palace in what was Zelenskyy’s second trip abroad since the Russian invasion began last February 24. In December, the Ukrainian leader went to Washington to meet with President Joe Biden and address Congress.
Later Wednesday, Zelenskyy was to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Paris.
