🇬🇧British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has penned a letter to the “strong and dignified” children of Ukraine, praising them for holding their heads high in the “toughest of times”.

He told the children they were not alone, saying it was “very sad” that on a visit to Kyiv last month he saw no youngsters playing outside.

“When your president showed me around Kyiv last month, the absence of children and young people on the streets and in the parks made me feel very sad,” he wrote.
He went on to say that Ukrainian children must bear two things in mind: that they should be “immensely proud” and that they have “millions” of friends around the world. Mr Johnson said the children should be proud of their country, their parents, their families, their soldiers and, “most of all”, themselves.

“Yet, every day Ukrainian children are teaching all of us what it means to be strong and dignified, to hold your head high in even the toughest of times. I can think of no better role model for children and adults everywhere.”
