During a whirlwind weekend European tour, Zelenskyy elicited more military support from allies in preparation for a counteroffensive against Russia. After stopping in France, Italy and Germany, he was greeted warmly by U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in Checquers, U.K., May 15, 2023. Zelenskky came home with a significant aid package from Germany, worth more than $3 billion, including tanks, anti-aircraft systems and ammunition.
