However, bookmakers have already named three leading candidates to replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister of Great Britain: Penny Mordaunt (Minister of State for Trade Policy), Rishi Sunak (Former Chancellor of the Exchequer), Liz Truss (Foreign Secretary).

What can be said about the activities of these politicians through the lens of the war in Ukraine? What does the change of the British leader mean for Ukraine?
