The ministry said in a statement that the parties coordinated the positions of Kiev and London "against the backdrop of aggressive actions" by Moscow and diplomatic negotiations that will take place in various formats in the coming weeks through NATO, the European Union and the OSCE.

During the conversation, the British Foreign Minister assured her "unwavering support for Ukraine" and noted her commitment to the principle of "no decisions on Ukraine without Ukraine."

“Together we are confidently moving towards the implementation of the comprehensive package of containment of Russia proposed by Kiev in November. The containment package includes political, economic, and security issues. I am grateful to Great Britain for its leadership role in this process, ”Kuleba said after the meeting.

The diplomats also discussed the preparations for the NATO summit in Madrid in June.

Earlier, a member of the British House of Lords Zach Goldsmith said that Russia's "invasion" of Ukraine would be a mistake and would lead to dire consequences.

The story of a possible "Russian invasion" of Ukraine has been actively promoted in the West since mid-autumn. The United States has consistently pointed to an alleged increase in Russian forces near the Ukrainian borders, threatening Moscow with new sanctions in the event of an escalation. At the same time, the Kremlin has repeatedly directly denied any plans to attack Ukraine, on the contrary, pointing to the possible preparation of a military operation in Donbass from Kiev.
