In what British media dubbed “a rare political comment,” the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on Saturday said they are among those around the world standing with battered Ukraine.

“In October 2020 we had the privilege to meet President Zelenskyy and the First Lady to learn of their hope and optimism for Ukraine’s future. Today we stand with the President and all of Ukraine’s people as they bravely fight for that future,” they tweeted. The tweet was signed “W&C” to signify that it was a personal comment from Prince William and his wife, Catherine.

A similar tweet from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle produced a backlash at the senders, who the Daily Mail noted live in a lavish California mansion.

In embattled Ukraine on Saturday, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a video that his overmatched army had “withstood and successfully repelled enemy attacks.”

Zelensky called for anyone who can fight to join the battle, according to The New York Times.

“Every Ukrainian needs to remember one thing — if you can stop and destroy the occupiers — do it!” he said. “Anyone who can return to Ukraine, come back to defend Ukraine.”

 “Everyone can defend Ukraine from abroad, do it ceaselessly, persistently and together. All friends of Ukraine who want to join the defense — come. We will give you a weapon,” he said.

On Friday, Zelensky indicated he was not leaving his countrymen behind.

“Our army is here, our civil society is here, we are all here,” he said, according to The New York Times.

“We are defending our independence, our state, and we will continue to do so.”
