Ukraine’s leader Volodymyr Zelensky was compared by Rishi Sunak to the UK’s wartime premier Sir Winston Churchill during a visit to Chequers.
The Prime Minister welcomed Mr Zelensky to his country retreat – the first time he has hosted a visiting leader at the Buckinghamshire mansion.
The pair met in the Hawtrey Room, where Sir Winston made some of the radio addresses that helped keep up morale during the Second World War.
“In fact, this room that we are standing in, Winston Churchill made many of his famous speeches in World War Two from this room.
“And the same way today, your leadership, your country’s bravery and fortitude are an inspiration to us all.”
