Boris Johnson will invoke Winston Churchill as he the first world leader to address Kyiv parliament

Boris Johnson will today hail Ukraine’s ‘finest hour’ in standing up to Russia as he becomes the first world leader to address Kyiv’s parliament.

The Prime Minister will evoke Sir Winston Churchill and salute the resistance of Ukrainians in the face of the brutality of the Russian invaders.

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky also invoked him when he spoke to the Westminster Parliament in March.

Mr Johnson is expected to say: ‘When my country faced the threat of invasion during the Second World War, our Parliament, like yours, continued to meet throughout the conflict, and the British people showed such unity and resolve that we remember our time of greatest peril as our finest hour.

‘This is Ukraine’s finest hour, an epic chapter in your national story that will be remembered and recounted for generations to come.

‘Your children and grandchildren will say that Ukrainians taught the world that the brute force of an aggressor counts for nothing against the moral force of a people determined to be free.’

Mr Johnson regards Sir Winston as his political hero and wrote a biography of the wartime leader’s life called The Churchill Factor.

The new military support will include electronic warfare and GPS-jamming equipment, a counter-battery radar system and thousands of night vision devices. The package comes after ministers updated Parliament last week on plans to send sophisticated long-range Brimstone missiles and Stormer air defence vehicles.

The UK will also supply heavy lift aerial drones to provide logistical support to Ukrainian forces. Downing Street said it would also send more than a dozen new specialised Toyota Land Cruisers to protect civilian officials in eastern Ukraine and to evacuate civilians from frontline areas.

Mr Johnson visited Kyiv last month to meet Mr Zelensky after a pledge to give £100million worth of weapons to Ukraine.

The country’s parliament praised the Prime Minister, declaring: ‘Be brave, like Boris. Be brave, like Ukraine.’

The key Ukrainian city of Odesa is planning to honour him by naming a street or square after him.

During Mr Zelensky’s address to the Commons in March, he told MPs: ‘I would like to remind you the words that the United Kingdom have already heard, which are important again. We will not give up and we will not lose. We will fight until the end, at sea, in the air. We will continue fighting for our land, whatever the cost. We will fight in the forests, in the fields, on the shores, in the streets.’

Thanking ‘civilised countries’ for their support, he said: ‘I’m very grateful to you Boris… Please make sure you do what needs to be done and what is stipulated by the greatness of your country. Glory to Ukraine and glory to the UK.’

Britain is at the forefront of the West’s response to Russia’s invasion and has sent more than £450million in military aid to the Ukrainian army, including thousands of missiles.
