President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a video conference with the 43rd President of the United States of America George W. Bush.
"It is a great honor to meet you. I would like to thank the United States of America, the American people. I saw how people in the United States treat us on social networks, they take to the streets, support Ukraine with flags," the President said.
The 43rd President of the United States expressed his support for Volodymyr Zelenskyy and all the Ukrainian people in the fight against the aggressor.
"Your courage is very important for further success. If you continue to do what you do, you will always have our support if you continue to fight as you do now," said George W. Bush.
The President of Ukraine stressed that our state feels real help and sincere support from the United States.
"Americans are sincere, open-minded people, and I feel it. We have common values. I feel that it is from the heart," the President said.
The 43rd President of the United States noted the resilience of Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the people of Ukraine in resisting the invaders.
"Your country has been invaded by forces that want to kill innocent people. And the fact that you stand firm inspires Americans," said George W. Bush.
For his part, the President of Ukraine recalled the tragic events that took place in the United States on September 11, 2001. He noted that at that time many Ukrainians sympathized with the American people and shared the pain of relatives and friends of the victims of the terrorist act.
"Our conversation is important to me because you are an example of a strong leader," said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The President invited the 43rd President of the United States to visit Ukraine at his convenience.
