President Zelensky arrives in UK

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is meeting Rishi Sunak, after arriving for his first UK visit since Russia’s invasion.

He is holding talks with the British prime minister in Downing Street, ahead of an audience with King Charles and a speech to Parliament.

It comes as UK training of Ukrainian forces is set to be expanded to cover fighter jet pilots and marines.

The UK has also announced a fresh round of sanctions targeting Russia.

The latest sanctions target IT companies, as well as manufacturers of military equipment such as drones and helicopter parts.

Plans have been announced to train Ukrainian pilots to fly Nato-standard fighter jets in the future, a key request from Ukraine.
