Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and US President Joe Biden spoke to new British Prime Minister Keir Starmer on the phone to congratulate Labor on its victory in the UK general election. Zelensky thanked him for reaffirming his “unshakable support” for Ukraine, AFP, Agerpres reported.

“We have consolidated our position ahead of next week’s NATO summit in Washington, where support for Ukraine will largely be discussed,” the Ukrainian president said.

“I am grateful to Prime Minister Starmer for reaffirming Britain’s policy and unwavering support for Ukraine,” Volodymyr Zelensky said, while Britain has been the strongest supporter of Kiev since the start of the Russian invasion on February 24, 2022.

Keir Starmer has pledged to continue to provide “unwavering support” to Ukraine in the Battle of London, providing arms, funding and training some soldiers.

The US president congratulated Starmer in a phone call on Friday after Labor’s victory in the UK general election, saying he wanted to strengthen the “special relationship” between the two countries.

Starmer pledged Ukraine’s “unwavering support” to Biden over the phone.

“The leaders reaffirmed the special relationship between our countries and the importance of working together to support freedom and democracy in the world,” the White House said in a statement.

They reiterated to Russia “their continued support for Ukraine” and “reaffirmed their commitment to working with the leaders of Northern Ireland to build and sustain economic growth and to secure the outcomes of the Holy Silver Peace Agreement.”
