President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked President of the United States Donald Trump for the invitation to make an official visit to Washington.
The Head of State also emphasized that the draft law on strengthening the support for Ukraine, presented in the House of Representatives of the US Congress, was an important signal of a strong strategic partnership between the two countries.
"I am grateful to the United States for the consistent support for the territorial integrity of Ukraine," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
As known, the draft law "To provide support to Ukraine to defend its independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity, and for other purposes" is aimed at strengthening the defense capability of our state, in particular by transferring weaponry, selling lethal defense weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and strengthening Ukraine's ability to withstand Russian cyberattacks. The list of types of weapons that can be transferred to Ukraine is supplemented by anti-tank, anti-ship and anti-aircraft systems. Also, the document envisages the provision of the status of the key military-political ally of the United States to our country.
