How is the level of support for Ukraine from Britain
The Foreign Minister is sure that the level of support for the UK is not in connection with the resignation of Truss.
“There will be no interruptions in support. Of course, this is a very dramatic story... She is a very strong and influential leader, but we live in this world who stopped things that were simply not possible a year ago,” Kuleba said. .
Earlier, the head of the Central Institution of the Doctrine studio, Yaroslav Bozhko, noted that even after the change of prime minister, the policy of Great Britain is growing in the kingdom, which will not depend so much on "elite meetings about agreements and party consensus."
According to him, support for Ukraine was not some personal whim of Johnson or Liz Truss. It was part of a geopolitical construct that had been in place in the UK for many years. He noted that this is why Ukraine is an important part of British foreign policy plans.
