The Ukrainian community is disappointed our Prime Minister won't meet with Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Jacinda Ardern says she turned down an invitation due to travel commitments, but it doesn't change New Zealand's commitment to supporting the country.

Ukraine Association spokesperson Anton Stafurin told Heather du Plessis-Allan if she turned down the meeting for security reasons, he doesn't buy it.

“Many leaders of the free world already made it. Boris Johnson made it twice, Justin Trudeau amid the Omicron, Nancy Pelosi, Lloyd Austin, Angelina Jolie.”
