They must help us, he also added.

Meanwhile the UK government will reopen the British Embassy in Ukraine's capital city of Kyiv by next week, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed during his India visit on Friday.

The Embassy was forced to temporarily close down when the Russia-Ukraine conflict began in February, news agency PTI reported.

"The extraordinary fortitude and success of [Ukraine] President Zelensky in resisting Russian forces in Kyiv means I can announce that very shortly, next week, we will reopen our embassy in Ukraine's capital city," Johnson told reporters addressing a press conference in New Delhi.

"I want to pay tribute to those British diplomats who remained in the region throughout this period," he said.

A contingent of British staff remained in western Ukraine to provide humanitarian and other support.
