“He is An Ally and I’m Happy He’s Still Prime Minister” – Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky Celebrates Boris Johnson’s Impeachment Survival



Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky has expressed his happiness over UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s survival of an impeachment attempt.

On Monday, June 6, Johnson won a confidence vote despite a major revolt that saw 148 of his own Tory MPs vote to remove him.

Johnson has forged a close relationship with President Zelensky since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The UK was among the first to provide weapons to support Ukraine’s defence and – like its Western allies – has imposed sweeping sanctions on the Russian government and oligarchs.

In April, Mr Johnson pledged “unwavering support” on a visit to the capital Kyiv, where he did an unannounced walkabout of the city with President Zelensky.

On Tuesday, Zelensky reacting to Johnson’s impeachment survival said;

“I’m glad we haven’t lost an important ally, this is great news,” Zelensky said at an online event.

He called Mr Johnson a “true friend of Ukraine” and a “concrete” supporter in an interview at a virtual conference hosted by the Financial Times on Tuesday.

The UK’s military support to Ukraine amounts to £750m so far and includes thousands of anti-tank missiles, 20 armoured vehicles, 4.5 tonnes of plastic explosives, and electronic warfare kit.

On top of this, the UK says it is providing £220m of humanitarian assistance to Ukraine.
