As part of his visit to the Republic of Turkey, the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak held a meeting with the National Security Advisor to the President of the United States of America, Jake Sullivan, to discuss the latest aggressive actions of the Russian Federation.
Andriy Yermak highly appreciated the level of economic and defense support provided by the United States to Ukraine to counter full-scale Russian aggression. In this context, he noted the recent announcement of another US security assistance package in the amount of $1.1 billion and the signing by President Biden of the law approved by both houses of the US Congress on the allocation of additional support for our state in the amount of $12.35 billion.
At the same time, Yermak said, “the kremlin’s decision to recognize the so-called “referendums” in the temporarily occupied territories require an immediate adequate response from the world community. We cannot allow the Crimean scenario to be repeated. We will react strongly and in a consolidated manner.”
During the meeting, the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine briefed Jake Sullivan on the situation on the front line, drawing attention to the noticeable increase in shelling of civilian targets by the Russian army against the background of the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The parties discussed further security aid to the Ukrainian army.
Andriy Yermak emphasized the urgent priority needs of the defense forces of Ukraine and the importance of promptly obtaining such support and its increase.
The Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine and the National Security Advisor to the President of the USA discussed in detail all relevant issues of bilateral cooperation.
