Duke of Cambridge Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his wife Elena. Reported by Reuters.
It is noted that the meeting took place in the Throne Room of Buckingham Palace in London. Prince William greeted Zelenskiy on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain.
Zelensky is on an official visit to the UK on October 7-8. He also plans to meet with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and British investors. It is also known that Britain and Ukraine will sign a bilateral agreement on free trade and strategic partnership.
Earlier in September, Ukraine and the UK held a joint military exercise, United Efforts 2020, in response to Russia's Caucasus 2020 exercises. More than 200 instructors from NATO countries took part in the “United Efforts”. In the text of the British Department of Defense, it was said that British paratroopers landed in Ukraine to test the ability to provide quick assistance to the allies if necessary. On the preview of the post was written the phrase “We landed in the backyard of Russia.”
