Kuleba said that the topic has been recently discussed that partners are allegedly pushing Ukraine to premature negotiations with Russia.
“It is important to note, and my British colleague and I fully agree on this, that Russia is not currently looking for peace, it is seeking a respite in order to continue the destruction of Ukraine and Ukrainians with renewed vigor,” the minister said.
Kuleba also thanked Britain for handing over three Sea King helicopters to Ukraine, one of which is already in the country.
Cleverley said at a briefing that Britain will continue to support Ukraine – in particular, he announced the allocation of additional funds to support its economic stability and plans to help restore energy infrastructure, as well as rebuild cities and towns liberated from Russian occupation. In the near future, Ukraine will receive 35 ambulances and several military vehicles.
The head of the Foreign Office also said the UK would earmark £3.5m for a Ukrainian fund to help victims of gender-based violence, and £5m for a Ukrainian initiative to send food to Ethiopia and other countries in dire need of it.
