Ukraine's President Zelensky thanks British journalists for 'vital support' as Sun man honoured for war dispatches | The Sun

UKRAINIAN President Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked British journalists – including Sun reporters – for their "vital support" in his nation’s war against Russia.

The wartime leader, 45, commended Brit reporters for their efforts in covering the war for more than a year.

In a keynote address to the Society of Editors Media Freedom Conference in London yesterday, the Ukrainian leader called for more coverage of the invasion.

He said: "I urge you to come to Ukraine, spread the truth about the Russian aggression, support our defence and give Ukrainian life worth."

Zelensky, who was elected in 2019, also called on "every crime committed by the Russian occupiers" to be reported "so it does not pass without a trace".

It comes after Sun Defence Editor Jerome Starkey won the coveted Press Awards’ News Reporter of the Year award for his dispatches from the war’s frontline.

In a video address, Zelensky added: "Life as such, needs the attention of the world – the attention of journalists and policy makers, public leaders and every community, every nation that values freedom.

"Now more than ever, your ability is needed to bring words to life."

He continued: "This is needed for Ukraine to say we can win, for Ukrainians to say we can restore justice.

"No one potential aggressor in the world will ever dare to start another similar war if the story of the Ukrainian victory will be heard globally.
