Ukraine LIVE: Do it! Lavrov goads UK to ‘force Russia to knees’ in staggering new threat | World | News

A summit is being held in London on Friday to look at how the UK can help rebuild Ukraine once the war against Russia has ended.

A new joint task force is being discussed to help establish partnerships between UK and Ukrainian businesses.

International Trade Secretary Anne-Marie Trevelyan said: “We have all seen the heart-wrenching images of the destruction to the great city of Kyiv, and the thousands of homes, buildings and critical infrastructure across Ukraine that have been destroyed.

“Throughout this, the great people of Ukraine have shown immeasurable strength and courage, and we stand with them in hope of a brighter future.

“That is why it is important to talk about a post-conflict Ukraine, and today we are making our commitment clear to help it rebuild in peace.

“Our world-class infrastructure and energy companies, along with businesses in fields like transport, healthcare and agriculture are not just well-placed to support the immediate humanitarian response, they are in a strong position to play a part in Ukraine’s longer-term reconstruction , too.

“Together, we can help Ukraine to build back better, stronger and greener.”
