Before his formal departure from 10 Downing Street early next month to make room for a new British Prime Minister, this was Johnson's third and final trip to Kyiv as the country's leader since the war's start.

On Wednesday, the war-torn nation of Ukraine celebrated its 31st anniversary of gaining independence from the Soviet Union by receiving a surprise visit from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The departing Prime Minister also committed to providing Ukraine with another package of military assistance as it battles the now six-month-old Russian incursion. He said that he felt Kyiv will win the conflict and reaffirmed the UK's support for the city.


According to a statement from Johnson's office, the 54 million pound ($63.5 million) package would include 2,000 drones and loitering munitions to help the Ukrainian military better detect and target invading Russian forces.


"The United Kingdom will keep supporting our Ukrainian friends. I think Ukraine will prevail in this conflict "Johnson, whose tenure as prime minister is about to expire, stated on Twitter. Johnson added that despite the war's impact on rising living costs, the West must "keep the course" on Ukraine.


Before his formal departure from 10 Downing Street early next month to make room for a new British Prime Minister, this was Johnson's third and final trip to Kyiv as the country's leader since the war's start.


The front-runners for the position of UK prime minister are Foreign Secretary Liz Truss and former Finance Minister Rishi Sunak, both of whom have vowed to maintain Britain's support for Ukraine. On September 5, the outcome of the leading competitors will be made public.
