Commons stand and applaud Ukraine ambassador in unprecedented show of respect

The House of Commons stood up to greet Ukraine’s top diplomat to the United Kingdom with rapturous applause.

Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle remarked MPs are not traditionally allowed to do so but it was “quite right” for them on this occasion to highlight Britain’s support to Ukraine.

The whole House launched in a two-minute standing ovation, applauding Vadym Prystaiko and his compatriots.
