The President met with a delegation from the U.S. Senate in Lviv

During his working trip to Lviv region, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with the leader of the U.S. Senate Democratic Majority, Chuck Schumer, as well as Senators Richard Blumenthal, Jack Reed, Michael Bennet, and Maggie Hassan.

The Head of State emphasized that the visit of the senators to Ukraine is particularly important on the eve of the second anniversary of the start of Russia's large-scale military aggression against Ukraine.

"This is a serious message from the United States, from the American people. It shows that you support us. Americans are on the side of truth, and we share common values. I thank you for helping us preserve democracy not only in Ukraine, as the struggle for democracy and freedom must be fought around the world," said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

The President thanked the Congress, the Democratic and Republican parties, the President of the United States, and the American people for providing defense, financial, and economic assistance to Ukraine.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy praised the leadership role of the United States in providing support for our country from the first days of the large-scale invasion and continuing it during the two years of the war.

"Throughout these two years, we have always felt that the United States stands with us," the President said.

At the meeting, Volodymyr Zelenskyy provided the senators with detailed information about the situation on the front lines and the urgent needs of the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

The Head of State called for further boosting defense assistance to achieve strategic goals on the front lines. The President emphasized that obtaining additional air defense systems and various types of UAVs, as well as strengthening the long-range capabilities of our military to effectively protect civilians and critical infrastructure, remains the priority.
