In a remote address to the Ukrainian parliament, Johnson hailed the country's fight against Russia as its "finest hour".

"We will carry on supplying Ukraine... with weapons, funding, and humanitarian aid until we have achieved our long-term goal, which must be so to fortify Ukraine that no one will ever dare to attack you again," he told the Verkhovna Rada.
