British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which he raised the issue of Ukraine. The dialogue between two leaders took place on the eve of the COP26 climate summit, which will be held in Britain, according to the British government.

“The Prime Minister was clear that the UK’s current relationship with Russia is not the one we want. He said significant bilateral difficulties remain, including the poisonings in Salisbury in 2018. The Prime Minister also underscored the importance of Ukrainian sovereignty,” the message says.

Besides, according to the representatives of Johnson and Putin, during the conversation they talked about Russia's plans to achieve carbon neutrality no later than 2060, and about the protection of international agreements such as the Iranian nuclear treaty, the human rights situation in Afghanistan and the conditions for the recognition of the Taliban government in this country.
