Russia-Ukraine war – latest news updates

Rishi Sunak said he hoped there would be “demonstrable progress” towards Ukraine’s eventual membership of Nato at the two-day leaders’ summit, but did not give any timescale or set any conditions that the country may have to meet before becoming a member.

The prime minister said “Ukraine’s rightful place is in Nato” as he flew out to the summit in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius on Tuesday, but he said further discussions about how Kyiv could achieve membership would take place among leaders at the annual summit.
