-British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday told Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy he is committed to further tightening sanctions to impose maximum economic cost on Russia, a Downing Street spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said Johnson discussed the situation in Ukraine on a call with Zelenskiy on Wednesday evening.
