UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Friday that the British Embassy in Ukraine will reopen in Kyiv "very shortly."
"The extraordinary fortitude and success of President Zelensky and the Ukrainian people in resisting Russian forces in Kyiv means that I can announce today that we will very shortly, next week, reopen our embassy in Ukraine's capital city," Johnson said in a press conference following his meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi.
Johnson paid tribute to British diplomats who have remained elsewhere in the region and said his country will continue to support Ukraine:
The United Kingdom and our allies will not watch passively as Putin carries on this onslaught."
"What I think we've seen here in New Delhi is one of the world's oldest democracies and the world's largest democracy sticking together and confronting our shared anxieties about autocracies and autocratic coercion around the world and acting together to make our countries safer and more prosperous," he added.
