Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Monday that Ukraine felt supported by Britain and other Group of Seven countries in its standoff with Russia, after speaking to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson by phone.

“Russia’s recent actions pose a serious challenge to the security of Ukraine, @NATO members and the entire Europe,” he said in a tweet. “We feel that Ukraine is not alone,” he said, adding that a NATO membership action plan was a top priority for Kyiv.
