Volodymyr Zelensky recalled visiting the Churchill War Rooms in a speech to Parliament today.

He said: “Mr Prime Minister, Rishi, when we had our meeting today and I said to you that I will tell a story in my address to the Parliament and a story about my feelings on my first visit to London as president in 2020.”

He said the programme was “packed”, referring a visit to Buckingham Palace, Westminster and Downing Street.

He turned to the historic War Rooms, and Sir Winston Churchill’s armchair.

A guide asked him “how did I feel?”.

Mr Zelensky said: “And I said that I suddenly felt something. But it is only now that I know what the feeling was.

“And all Ukrainians know it perfectly well too. It is a feeling of how bravery takes you through the most unimaginable hardships to finally reward you with victory.”
