Less than half of Brits think the UK should send war planes to help Ukraine fight crazed tyrant Vladimir Putin and his Russian invaders.
A survey found just 41 per cent of British people supported sending the planes President Zelensky pleaded for when he visited the UK earlier this month.
The Ukrainian President was given a rapturous reception at the Palace of Westminster on February 8, during his first visit to Britain since the invasion.
Watched by Rishi Sunak, and with Mr Johnson in the audience, Mr Zelensky insisted that more help will be needed to defeat the Russian aggressors.
He presented Speaker Lindsay Hoyle with a helmet signed by one of Kyiv’s top pilots.

He also appealed for the UK to supply ‘powerful’ aircraft – after Mr Sunak announced that Britain will train forces in how to fly them.
The message on the helmet reads: ‘We have freedom, give us wings to protect it.’
However, a poll by The Daily Telegraph found just 41 per cent think Rishi Sunak should send the jets Zelensky desires.
More than a quarter (27 per cent) think the UK should be less involved in Putin’s illegal war that has already claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands and displaced millions.

Crazed tyrant Vladimir Putin’s brutal invasion has already claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and displaced millions
Friday marks the one-year mark since deranged despot Putin ordered his troops to invade Ukraine.
Putin’s claim of a motive for the invasion being to fight Nazism in Europe has been debunked by people who are not under the alleged war criminal’s thumb.
The shocking findings of the survey came as countries around the world rallied in support of Ukraine’s heroic resistance against Moscow’s brutal war-mongering.
On Thursday, Dame Helen Mirren joined with Defence Secretary Ben Wallace as they spoke at a vigil marking the one-year anniversary of the start of the war.

Zelensky vowed to keep up the fight as Ukraine prepared to mark one year since the invasion on Friday.
‘We have not broken down, we have overcome many ordeals and we will prevail,’ Zelensky said on social media.
‘We will hold to account all those who brought this evil, this war to our land.’
