The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has addressed the Ukrainian parliament today via video link, he told Verkhovna Rada, the “Ukraine will win, Ukraine will be free.”
Johnson said the address was a “big honour,” he said, “I salute the courage with which you are meeting, the way you have continued to meet, in spite of a barbaric onslaught on your freedoms.”
He added that the UK will do “whatever we can” to hold Russia and Vladimir Putin to account for war crimes in Bucha, Irpin and Hostomel.
Johnson said, “I’ve wandered the lovely streets of your capital and I’ve seen enough about Ukrainian freedom to know that the Kremlin was making a fundamental miscalculation, a terrible mistake.
“I told anyone I knew, anyone who would listen that Ukraine would fight and Ukraine would be right and yet there were some who believed the Kremlin propaganda that Russian armour would be like an irresistible force going like a knife through butter, and that Kyiv would fall within days.”
The British Prime Minister added, “Today you have proved them completely wrong, every one of those military experts who said Ukraine would fall.
“The so-called irresistible force of Putin’s war machine has broken on the immoveable object of Ukrainian patriotism and love of country.
“This is Ukraine’s finest hour – that will be remembered and recounted for generations to come.”
