  1. The US is Ukraine’s biggest and most vital ally. However, proportionate to GDP, Britain is Ukraine’s biggest financial supporter. It punches above its weight politically and economically. And it will only get better; modern warships are currently being built in a joint venture with Ukraine.
    Boris has delivered on his promise to Zel made last year, despite enduring very difficult and challenging problems on the home front. I sincerely hope his party will be re-elected. For the UK and Ukraine’s sake.

      • I wish i could be our president. I would allow Ukraine into Nato instantly, assist Ukraine to clean the invaders out of Donbas, deport all ‘refugees’, reduce spending and boost the economy, and finally i would declare a virus that can be defeated by using nasal spray and wearing masks a joke! Cheers!

      • Technically he could run for president. He was born in the USA!
        Maybe he could do ten years as British PM, hand over to Rishi Sunak or Liz Truss and head over to the US. By that time he will be an elder statesmen in his mid-60’s and ready for a fresh challenge!

        • Thus far, he is a far better statesman than Biden. Though, I’m not saying that Biden is one… At any rate, Boris would be a better president than a whole slew of American politicians, that’s for damned sure.
