As a part of President Volodymyr Zelensky's and a Ministerial delegation's visit to London, British Foreign Secretary Dominique Raab will assure his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba that the UK is going to provide five million pounds to support communities in eastern Ukraine affected by the armed conflict and the coronavirus pandemic. This was reported by the press service of the UK’s Foreign Ministry.
The British government will also allocate 600 thousand pounds to support the OSCE mission in Donbas.
"Ukraine’s stability is vital for Europe’s security. Providing £5m in humanitarian aid and signing the Political, Free Trade and Strategic Partnership Agreement is a clear demonstration of the UK’s commitment to Ukraine’s prosperity and security," Raab stated.
As we reported earlier, Zelensky's visit to the UK is scheduled for October 7-8.
During this visit, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Zelensky will sign the Political, Free Trade and Strategic Partnership Agreement to strengthen UK cooperation in political, security and foreign matters with Ukraine, while also securing continued preferential trade for businesses and consumers.
