The United Kingdom is investing $25 million to unlock Ukrainian exports and imports, including crucial food supplies, according to the UK's Foreign Ministry.

As part of a two-day program, the foreign minister will meet with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, Bill Gates, and others to discuss the need for further cooperation and fresh thinking, particularly to address ongoing conflicts.

The British Foreign Secretary will also affirm support for Ukraine in a conversation with the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, focusing on the necessity of unity to lay the foundations for Ukraine's long-term future and to win the war.

UK stands with Ukraine

Cameron stated that the United Kingdom will continue to steadfastly support Ukraine, ensuring it not only wins the war but emerges as a strong, sovereign, and free country.

"Ukraine is standing up for the rules that keep us all safe. This is why the UK has provided almost £12 billion in support to Ukraine. We will stand with them for as long as it takes to achieve victory," added the minister.

New aid for Ukraine

The meeting with the Ukrainian Foreign Minister occurred as the British Development Finance Institute launched its first investments in Ukraine, allocating $25 million to ensure Ukraine's connectivity with the global economy.

Recent support for Ukraine from UK

Recently, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak, announced the largest aid package to Ukraine since the beginning of the war.

The Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Rustem Umiev, reported that £200 million from this package would be used to produce combat drones.

Deputy Head of the Office of the President, Igor Zhovkva, mentioned that the United Kingdom could provide military assistance to Ukraine but would not engage in combat operations.
