The British Foreign Secretary, who is one of the most likely candidates for the post of Prime Minister, has promised to become «best friend» Ukraine

British Foreign Secretary Elizabeth Truss, who may replace Boris Johnson as prime minister, said that if she leads the government, she will be Ukraine's “best friend” and will immediately call President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Johnson, who was forced to resign as a result of massive discontent among members of his Conservative Party, has actively supported and continues to support Ukraine. He visited Kyiv twice.

Trass, as foreign minister, was responsible for sanctions against Russia. She promised that she would work with allies to ensure that Ukraine received more weapons and humanitarian aid.

She noted that her goal was for Russian President Vladimir Putin to suffer a strategic defeat in Ukraine.

The future Prime Minister of Great Britain will be determined by a vote on 5 September. Truss and former Finance Minister Rishi Sunak are the favorites of the race.
