Volodymyr Zelensky and Rishi Sunak

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has met Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on a visit to the United Kingdom.

In a response to seeking of arms, the UK announced an immediate surge of military deliveries to Ukraine to help it fend off an intensifying Russian offensive and pledged to train its pilots, as both leaders met.

While outside the British prime minister's office, Zelenskiy thanked Britain for its support "from the first days of the full-scale invasion".

He added; "Thank you so much, we are proud, really, and have very good relations with Rishi.

“The visit is a testament to Ukraine's courage, determination and fight and to the unbreakable friendship between our two countries.

"I am proud that today we will expand that training from soldiers to marines and fighter jet pilots, ensuring Ukraine has a military able to defend its interests well into the future."

UK was Zelenskiy's first stop on only his second trip abroad since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 after a visit to the United States in December.

He is also due to travel to Brussels on Thursday where the European Union is holding a summit.
