British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised a 54 million pound ($63.5m) military package which will include 200 drones and loitering munitions to support Ukraine after meeting with Zelenskyy in Kyiv.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi has said the European Union countries should agree on a cap on the price of gas imported from Russia to help ease the burden of rising prices on businesses and households.

The United Kingdom imported no fuel from Russia in June for the first time since records began 25 years ago, as sanctions on Moscow in response to its invasion of Ukraine helped drive a 97 percent fall in imports of Russian goods, official data has shown.
