As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainski Novyny, Johnson said at a joint press conference with Foreign Ministers of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin and Poland Witold Waszczykowski in Kyiv on Wednesday.

Johnson also acknowledged progress in Ukraine reforms, namely in anti-corruption efforts so much welcomed by the U.K.
British foreign minister said he and Kyiv Mayor Vitalii Klitschko discussed possible U.K.'s aid in preparations for Eurovision 2017 international song contest.
