British Prime Minister Boris Johnson proposed to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to create a new international political alliance directed against Russia.

According to Corriere Della Sera, we are talking about the unification of countries that are dissatisfied with the policy of Brussels and Germany's actions against Russia. The initiative was first presented by Johnson to Zelensky when he received him in Kyiv in early April. He proposed to make Great Britain the leader of the alliance, and Poland, Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania would be included in it. He suggested that Turkey could also be included in the community. These countries, according to the authors of the article in the newspaper, "zealously defend national sovereignty, stand for a free economy and are ready to take the toughest possible stance against the Russian military threat."

Zelensky has not yet decided on the answer. Apparently, he is waiting for the summit of the EU countries, where he will decide on granting Ukraine the status of a candidate for association - the final decision is likely to influence Kyiv's further steps.

At the beginning of the month, Johnson discussed with Zelensky the supply of weapons to Ukraine under the pretext of protecting civilians. Before that, while speaking to the Verkhovna Rada via video link, he said that London was preparing a new package of military assistance in the amount of 300 million pounds. A few days later, it became known that an additional package of British financial assistance to Ukraine caused discontent among the taxpayers of the United Kingdom. And then it was about the amount of 1.3 billion pounds.
