President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met in Kyiv with Senator James Risch, Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
The President noted the importance of the US Senator’s visit at this difficult time for our country and stressed that bicameral and bipartisan support for Ukraine is vital today.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy informed about the situation on the front, as well as about the recent missile strikes that demonstratively took place on the eve of important events, including the G7 and NATO summits, which is a security challenge not only for Ukraine, but also for the entire European continent.
The President stressed that this should not be left without a firm response from the civilized world – the aggressor must be punished.
The importance of recognizing Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism was also noted during the conversation.
The parties discussed the deepening of bilateral cooperation in the defense sphere, the strengthening of sanctions and the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine.
“I am sincerely grateful to the President, Congress and the entire American people for their extensive security and financial support,” said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
