President of Ukraine holds meeting with delegation of U.S. congressmen

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with a bipartisan delegation from the House of Representatives of the United States, including James French Hill, Michael Quigley, and Stephen Lynch, who are currently visiting Ukraine.

The Head of State said that such solidarity visits send a powerful signal of support for our country and the entire Ukrainian people from the United States. This is especially important as the aggressor state plans to continue its missile terror against Ukrainian cities and critical infrastructure objects in the lead up to winter.

"We highly appreciate the fact that the Republican and Democratic parties, the administration of President Joseph Biden, as well as the U.S. Congress, are united in supporting Ukraine. This is indeed a powerful message to the world that we will prevail in our fight for our common values – freedom and democracy," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

During the meeting, the continuation of effective and comprehensive support for Ukraine from the United States was discussed. In this context, there was an emphasis on the importance of President Joseph Biden submitting a budget request to Congress for funding assistance to Ukraine, which includes provisions for budgetary and military aid.

"Since the early days of the full-scale invasion, U.S. support remains unwavering, which has helped unite the world around Ukraine. Continuing such assistance is the key to our country's success in countering Russian aggression," the President said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also provided the U.S. delegation with a detailed update on the situation at the front lines and the urgent needs of Ukraine's defense forces. In this context, the key directions for further U.S. assistance to our country in the areas of security and defense were discussed in detail.
