Zelenskiy arrived in the UK and was greeted by UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who promised him extra military aid as part of what Downing Street called a two-pronged approach to UK support for Ukraine.
Why it matters
The visit comes at a time when Kyiv is urging the West to send more weapons and military support to counter Russian advances. It is significant as it is only the second trip the Ukrainian leader has made outside his country since Russia's invasion last February.

The UK has promised to start with an immediate surge of military equipment and a proposal to bolster the UK's training offer for Ukrainian troops, including expanding it to fighter jet pilots to help them fly Nato-standard jets.
