UKRAINIAN President Volodymyr Zelensky was in the south west this month.
Following an address to MPs at the Houses of Parliament and meeting with King Charles III on Wednesday, February 8, the war leader visited Lulworth camp, where Ukranian soldiers are being trained in use of the Challenger 2 tanks.
Flanked by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Mr Zelensky presented medals to some of the troops who will soon be sent to the frontline, with tanks provided by the UK.
The pair held a press conference at the camp, where Mr Sunak said ‘nothing was off the table’ when asked about Ukraine’s request for the provision of fighter jets to help their fight against the invading Russian army.
Warplanes were ‘part of the conversation’, the Prime Minister told reporters.
Lulworth Camp, near Wareham, is home to the Armoured Vehicle Gunnery School.
