The Ukrainian prime minister arrived in Britain for a farewell ceremony with Queen Elizabeth II. However, in difficult times for the country, it is necessary to combine several essential things simultaneously. Therefore, during the official meeting, Denys Shmyhal also discussed important issues with the British foreign minister.
The main issue of the meeting was a strategic partnership. Now that Britain has undergone significant changes in just a few weeks, Charles III has assumed the throne, and Liz Truss has become prime minister, it is necessary to establish ties and understand the political sentiments associated with Ukraine.
During the meeting, it became known that Britain will continue to develop diplomatic relations with Ukraine, and all the launched cooperation processes will continue under the new government. It is worth noting that the new British prime minister Liz Truss has announced the appointment of new key ministers. Therefore, the meeting of the Ukrainian politician with the head of the minister of foreign affairs, James Cleverly became the first in this post. However, the new British minister had previously served 2 years in the foreign office.
This evening I, together with the Lord Speaker were joined by the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys_Shmyhal for the National Moment of Reflection. We observed a 1 minute silence to mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and reflect on her life and legacy," Sir Lindsay Hoyle, 158th Speaker of the UK House of Commons.
There was also a discussion about helping Ukraine in the war. Despite the new government, Russia remains an anti-hero of modern times, so Ukrainian defenders will continue to be supported by the United Kingdom.
"Ukraine and the UK continue to develop a strategic partnership. Thank the UK for the assistance. With such support, we are confident that Ukraine will win," wrote Shmyhal on Twitter.
