Johnson, Zelensky talk more defense support for Ukraine

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, in a phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, talked about strengthening the UK's support for Kiev, the Guardian reported citing a Downing Street spokesperson.

According to the spokeswoman, Johnson pledged he will continue to intensify the aid for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in order to help "their efforts to defend their homeland" against what he referred to as a "barbaric attack."

The two leaders condemned Russia's blockade of the Odesa shipping port and promised to work together with G7 member nations to get Moscow to allow safe shipping again. "We must work together to prevent a food crisis and unblock Ukrainian ports," Zelensky said after the call.
