During a surprise visit to Kyiv on April 9, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the package a testament of the U.K.'s commitment to Ukraine's struggle "against Russia’s barbaric campaign."

The aid is in addition to the earlier announced $130 million package, which includes Starstreak air defense systems, NLAW anti-tank missiles, Javelin anti-tank systems and more.

President Volodymyr Zelensky called Johnson "a friend" and "one of the most principled opponents of the Russian invasion."
