UK to pledge to 'do everything possible to ensure Ukraine wins war'

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss will promise that the UK will do everything to help Ukraine win the war and recover.

She will inform the Ukraine Recovery Conference in Switzerland today, that the UK will continue to support the country for the “long-term” and resist Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion.

According to the Foreign Office, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian President, has requested that the UK champion the recovery and reconstruction of Kyiv’s capital and surrounding areas.

However, Russia’s ability of hitting the capital with missiles is making it more difficult to rebuild the area as its forces advance slowly in the east.

  • According to The Association of Cities of Ukraine, eight Ukrainian leaders from villages and cities are held in Russia.
  • Russian forces were defeated by Ukrainian forces in Novomykhailivka and Bohorodychne.
  • One civilian was killed and another injured in an explosion of a Russian mine in the Odesa region.
