House Republicans will host former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington on Tuesday.

Rep. Joe Wilson, South Carolina Republican, confirmed the event exclusively to The Washington Times.

Mr. Wilson co-chairs the U.K. Caucus and said the event will focus on showing appreciation for British support for Ukraine’s war efforts against Russia.

The congressman has been a staunch advocate for Ukraine amid tensions within the House Republican Conference that have split lawmakers on whether to continue providing aid for the embattled country.

Mr. Johnson will also be the guest for the Republican Study Committee’s luncheon Wednesday, the group confirmed.

He was seen on Capitol Hill walking into the office of Rep. Jim Banks, Indiana Republican, Tuesday.

Mr. Wilson said the event will be only for members of Congress without press attendance.

The reception is expected to take place from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Capitol Hill Club is a well-known Republican watering hole that often welcomes high-profile guests.
