President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had another phone call with Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Liz Truss.
The Head of State thanked for the strong support of Ukraine consistently demonstrated by the government of the United Kingdom. The President noted the powerful speech of Liz Truss at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly in New York, which spoke about the importance of supporting our country until victory.
He thanked for the principled position of the British side regarding the non-recognition of the sham referenda held by Russia in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. The Head of State emphasized that Great Britain became the first country in the democratic world to introduce sanctions against individuals and legal entities involved in the organization of disgraceful "referenda".
"They are worthless and do not change reality. The territorial integrity of Ukraine will be restored. Russia's recognition of these fake referenda and another attempt to annex Ukrainian territory will mean that there is nothing to talk about with this President of Russia," stated Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The President expressed gratitude for the defense support for our state amid full-scale Russian aggression, as well as for significant macro-financial aid, in particular, that planned for 2023.
Liz Truss noted the efforts of the leadership of Ukraine to release the citizens of Great Britain who were in Russian captivity, and expressed gratitude for their return.
The leaders discussed the preparation of bilateral events for the near future.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked Liz Truss for the meeting with the First Lady and the Prime Minister of Ukraine in New York, on the margins of the UN General Assembly, and noted that this is evidence of the strong support for our country from Great Britain.
