The head of the British Foreign Office noted that her country will provide assistance so that Ukraine becomes more powerful, more successful after the war, because it will become a symbol of democracy.
British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss assured that after every Russian missile that hits Ukrainian cities, her state will provide Ukraine with even more assistance.
Truss stated this, addressing the participants of the second summit of first ladies and gentlemen, which is taking place in Kiev, TSN reports .
“We know that Ukrainians are fighting not only for their future, but for democracy, future and sovereignty as such. That is why the victory of Ukraine is important for all of us. With every rocket that hits Ukrainian cities, with every man, woman and child, who are suffering, we will provide more,” the Foreign Minister said.
She noted that Britain will provide assistance so that Ukraine becomes more powerful, more successful after the war, because it will become a symbol of democracy.
“The fact that Putin is trying to destroy Ukraine is only creating a more powerful, united nation. The UK will stay with Ukraine for as long as it takes. Now, more than ever, Ukraine must win,” Truss stressed.
She also recalled that Britain provides various military assistance – from armored personnel carriers to drones, helps with the preparation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and imposed sanctions against a number of Russian citizens and Russian enterprises.
“These actions have one purpose: to strengthen President Zelensky. We know that Ukraine can win the war with the support of the free world,” Truss said, adding that no one can feel safe until Russia withdraws.
“We cannot allow this kind of aggression in the future. This is what the UK will be working towards. This is why the UK is working with partners to help rebuild Ukraine… The aggressor must lose and this is why we must help the Ukrainian people to push the Russians out of their land,” she said.
