Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky thanks the British Royal Family for their response to the Russian invasion of his country.

UKRAINE President Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked the British Royal Family for their response since the Russian invasion of his country. Zelensky’s Twitter account has been consistently active since the start of the Putin lead attack, which began on February 24.

In a tweet on Tuesday, March 1, Zelensky said: “Olena and I are grateful to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge @RoyalFamily that at this crucial time, when Ukraine is courageously opposing Russia’s invasion, they stand by our country and support our brave citizens. Good will triumph.”

 

On February 28, the Ukrainian leader confirmed further talks with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“Talked to Prime Minister Boris Johnson about the current security situation. Agreed on further joint steps to counter the aggressor. Anti-war coalition in action!” he said.

Boris Johnson stated on March 1 that the UK ‘stands ready’ to take refugees fleeing fighting in ‘considerable numbers’.

In a tweet, the Prime Minister added: “We’ll make it easier for Ukrainians living in the UK to bring their relatives to our country, provide up to £220 million (€264 million) of emergency & humanitarian aid and have put 1,000 troops on standby to help the humanitarian response in neighbouring countries.

“The UK stands with Ukraine.”

The Prince of Wales has also shared his opinion on the crisis happening in Ukraine.

Speaking at an event on Tuesday, March 1 which officially made Southend-on-Sea a city, the Prince of Wales said the values of democracy are under attack in Ukraine in the “most unconscionable way”.

He added: “We are in solidarity with all those who are resisting brutal aggression”.
