The Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend, the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) regularly discusses the situation in Ukraine with his international counterparts in Ukraine, Russia, the USA, EU and elsewhere. Recent conversations have included a telephone conversation with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin on 31 January, in which they discussed the escalation of violence in Avdiivka and the steps being taken by Ukraine to manage the humanitarian situation; a discussion at the EU Foreign Affairs Council on 6 February; and engagement with his Russian opposite number. Ukraine and Russia were also topics of conversation during the Prime Minister's meeting with President Trump in Washington in January this year.
