The UK Government engages closely and regularly with the Government of Ukraine. I visited Kyiv in September 2016 and have held a number of bilateral meetings and phonecalls since, most recently speaking to Foreign Minister Klimkin on 31 January. The Ukrainian Government has the UK’s full support in its efforts to deliver the comprehensive programme of reforms needed to transform Ukraine into a stable, prosperous, modern state. These include its commitments under the Minsk agreements. The immediate priority is for putting in place an effective ceasefire, which will in turn create much more favourable conditions for implementation of the other aspects of the Minsk agreements.
