Ukrainian troops will beat their Russian counterparts and it will "be free" from occupation, Boris Johnson has told the country's parliament - adding that it is a fight of "good versus evil".

The UK prime minister, who has become the first world leader to address Ukrainian MPs since Russia invaded in late February, said Ukraine had proven military experts "completely wrong".

In a recorded address, he told the Verkhovna Rada that the "so-called irresistible force of Putin's war machine has broken on the immoveable object of Ukrainian patriotism".

"Ukraine will win, Ukraine will be free," he said, while Ukrainian soldiers have "fought with the energy and courage of lions".

"You have proved the old saying - it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog."

Russian soldiers "no longer have the excuse of not knowing what they are doing", the prime minister added, flanked by both British and Ukrainian flags.

They are "committing war crimes" and their "atrocities emerge wherever they are forced to retreat".

It is a conflict with "no moral ambiguities or no grey areas", the prime minister told politicians watching him from Kyiv.

It is about "freedom versus oppression", "right versus wrong", and "good versus evil".

I Call Bull: As much as it pains me to say this it was an impressive sounding speech by Johnson but ultimately still hollow words from a hollow man so I'm calling bull on it as it wont make a jot of difference but will no doubt bait Russia even more than usual.

People in the UK are struggling to be able to feed themselves and the cost of living is escalating through the roof, so what does our PM do? He gives £300m to Ukraine of course.

And just where do all of these financial donations go to exactly, as there never seems to be any audit or record kept of that.

Just baiting Putin and putting a big old target on the UK for retribution whilst not actually doing anything useful here

Just Boris doing what he always does, giving sound-bytes and making hollow promises that he has no way of keeping
