Speaking to his parliament today, Boris Johnson described Ukraine’s resistance to the Russian invasion as the besieged country’s “finest hour”.
Speaking to lawmakers in Kyiv, Johnson laid out details of £300million additional military supportincluding “electronic warfare equipment, a counter-battery radar system, GPS jammers, and thousands of night vision devices,” the authorities said Office of the Prime Minister.
In the first address to the Verkhovna Rada by a Western leader since the beginning of the conflict More than two months ago, Johnson repeated the words of War Secretary Winston Churchill, “as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy did when addressing MPs in Westminster in March,” he said BBC.
“With the flags of the Union, as the Prime Minister spoke via video link, he channeled Winston Churchill and urged the country to continue to resist the Russian invaders,” he agreed Daily Mail.
Johnson declared: “The so-called irresistible force of Putin’s war machine has broken into the immovable object of Ukrainian patriotism and love of the fatherland. This is the finest hour of Ukraine that will be remembered and told by generations to come.”
Liberal Democrat foreign policy spokeswoman Layla Moran said the prime minister’s promise of guns was the “right decision but wrong time” and that the guns were “much needed” a week ago. She added: “Is it possible that Boris Johnson delayed this move to announce it during a difficult election week?”
