Following a frenzied political drama, Boris Johnson had resigned as the leader of Britain’s Conservative party, paving way for a leadership contest in which Liz Truss eventually won and became the premier.
“It is clearly the will of the parliamentary Conservative party that there should be a new leader of that party, and therefore a new Prime Minister,” Boris Johnson had then said.

“And let me say now, to the people of Ukraine, that I know that we in the UK will continue to back your fight for freedom for as long as it takes,” Boris Johnson had said.
