Ukrainian MP distances herself from Boris Johnson thanking Brits for support


Kira Rudik praised the UK for offering both military aid and humanitarian support in the face of Vladimir Putin’s brutal invasion of her country. The Ukrainian MP thanked international allies for their backing of President Zelensky’s defensive efforts to combat Russian aggression. Despite her grateful acceptance of global support, Ms Rudik made certain to clarify that the UK’s alliance with Ukraine was not explicitly tied to the leadership of Boris Johnson. She explained the provision was a matter of “survival” for Ukrainians and should not be credited to the personal nature of the Prime Minister.

Speaking on GB News, Ms Rudik said: “We are extremely grateful for all the help and support we have received from the United Kingdom through Boris Johnson. 

“For us, the support we are getting is critical for our survival, our physical survival.

“We want to believe it is not personal support by Boris Johnson or anybody else, but this is the support of all people in the United Kingdom.

“We do hope that, no matter who is in office, this support will continue.”

Mr Johnson has been repeatedly praised for his involvement in lobbying international support for Ukraine in the war prompted by President Putin’s ‘special military operation’.

GB News host Rosie Wright added: “Some might accuse Boris Johnson of using Ukraine and this conflict as a sort of PR strategy.” 

Ms Rudik replied: “In Ukraine, Boris Johnson is, indeed, extremely popular. 

“He is popular because he visited a couple of times and everytime he visits he brings in support, actual support that we can receive and send to our men and women at the front.”
