Speaker’s Statement

Volume 711: debated on Monday 28 March 2022

Before we start business today, I wish to report to the House that I have received a letter from the Speaker of the Ukraine Parliament. The letter says:

“I express my sincere gratitude to you and the House of Commons for your strong position in support of Ukraine, condemning the unprovoked and unjustified military aggression from the Russian Federation against the Ukrainian state”.

In particular, the letter expresses thanks for organising the address by President Zelensky, which it describes as

“a milestone event in the history of our bilateral relations”.

I know that, like me, colleagues will be grateful for this letter. [Hon. Members: “Hear, hear.”]
