Head of the Office of the President Andriy Yermak and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny had a phone talk with National Security Adviser to the Prime Minister of the UK Timothy Barrow.
Admiral Tony Radakin, Chief of the Defence Staff of the UK, also took part in the conversation.
Yermak highly praised the first telephone talks between President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister of the UK Rishi Sunak, which took place the day before. He said that during this talk, UK's course in support of Ukraine and the continued bilateral cooperation was confirmed.
The head of the President's Office emphasized the absurdity of the Russian leadership's statements regarding Ukraine's alleged intentions to create a "dirty bomb." In view of this, Yermak said that our country is open to the visit of IAEA experts who will be able to testify to the groundlessness of such accusations.
The head of the Office of the President also noted the importance of holding an online NATO + Ukraine summit.
He expressed his gratitude to the UK, which is providing significant political and defense support to Ukraine, and noted the systematic coordination of the parties' efforts in a wide range of issues.
Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny briefed the interlocutors on the operational situation at the front and thanked the British partners for helping the Ukrainian defenders during the repulsion of Russian aggression.
