Asked by journalists whether it was a good day for Ukraine, Zelenskyy smiled, nodded and said: "Thank you."


The UK prime minister also tweeted a photo of himself with Zelenskyy captioned "Ukraine, we’re not going anywhere."

Zelenskyy reported on Telegram that he and Sunak had discussed the further implementation of the agreements reached on 14 May during their talks in the UK, as well as the development of bilateral relations, and had coordinated Ukrainian positions ahead of its participation in the G7 summit.
