Prime Minister Boris Johnson met US Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and US Congress delegates in London today.

The Prime Minister joined by Speaker Pelosi, US Chairman Smith, US Chairman Schiff, Rep Lee, Rep Maloney, Rep Keating, Rep Swalwell, Rep Khanna and Rep Kim discussed the current situation in Ukraine, and their deep concern at the prospect of imminent Russian military action.

The Prime Minister outlined the steps the UK has taken to support Ukraine’s defence, including training 22,000 members of the Ukrainian Armed Forces under Operation Orbital.

Mr Johnson also thanked Speaker Pelosi for the US’ cooperation as we build up a comprehensive package of economic measures to ensure Russia pays the price for any further Russian breach of Ukraine’s sovereignty.

The group agreed that it was vital that President Putin fail in his efforts to subjugate Ukraine.

Whilst in London Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul Pelosi paid a visit to the the Houses of Parliament in Westminster and were greeted by Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle and his wife Catherine Swindley.
