The Ukrainian ambassador to the UK says there are "no longer shades or nuances, just black and white: neither side can afford to lose - this is win or die".

Thousands joined a march in support of Ukraine on Saturday in central London as Mayor Sadiq Khan urged the UK to do “much more” to help Ukrainian refugees.

A large crowd gathered near Hyde Park on Saturday afternoon for a march and vigil to send a unified message of support to the people of Ukraine.

The Ukrainian ambassador to the UK said there are “no longer shades or nuances, just black and white: neither side can afford to lose – this is win or die”.

There must be no “appeasement” of Russia, the Ukrainian ambassador to London has said, adding that the UK’s help during the invasion will “never be forgotten”.

They chanted “we stand with Ukraine” and carried banners reading “stop Putin’s war” and “no-fly zone”.

Crowds cheered the mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko when he appeared on the big screen to address them.
