Britain's Johnson meets Zelenskiy in Kyiv

STORY: Johnson, who Zelenskiy described as a "great friend," posted a picture of himself with the Ukrainian president, with the words "Mr President, Volodymyr, It is good to be in Kyiv again."

The meeting was shrouded in secrecy due to security concerns and is Johnson's latest show of support for Zelenskiy since Russia invaded Ukraine in February.

The two leaders discussed supplies of weapons and air defenses as well as further economic support for Ukraine and ramping up sanctions pressure on Russia, Zelenskiy's chief of staff Andriy Yermark said.

Johnson offered to launch a major training operation for Ukrainian forces, with the potential to train up to 10,000 soldiers every 120 days at the meeting, his office said.
