Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky offered a warm farewell to Boris Johnson as the British PM tendered his resignation on Thursday. Johnson’s departure has “saddened” all Ukrainians, Zelensky claimed, as he expressed hope that Kiev and London would remain “friends and strong allies” after his departure.
“Friend Boris Johnson, all Ukrainians were saddened by the news of the resignation of the leader of the Conservative Party. We are sincerely grateful for the decisive and uncompromising help from the first days of the war. Special thanks for your leadership in defending the interests of Ukraine in the international arena,” Zelensky said in a social media post, sharing a photo with Johnson taken during the latter’s recent visit to Kiev.
