President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Samantha Power.
The Head of State expressed gratitude to the United States of America for the powerful support of our country in resisting Russia's armed aggression and separately thanked Samantha Power for her work.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy highly appreciated the level of economic and defense support provided by the United States to Ukraine, and noted the recent announcement of another American security aid package in the amount of $1.1 billion, as well as the decision to allocate more than $12 billion in help in total.
"It is extremely important for us to have such an ally as the USA, which is a true leader in consolidating international support for Ukraine," the President said.
Separately, the Head of State emphasized the importance of Samantha Power's meeting with First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska as part of her visit to the United States in July this year, and also thanked the Agency for the allocation of $55 million to prepare Ukraine's heat infrastructure for winter amid Russian aggression.
The interlocutors discussed the details of a number of specific programs designed to build a safe environment in our country, as well as the importance of implementing the Fast Recovery Plan of Ukraine.
"Today, our main goal is to prepare for winter, create decent living conditions for the population in the liberated territories, and restore critical infrastructure as soon as possible. There is something big and ambitious that will happen after the victory of Ukraine, and there is something that is needed now and where you can help us," Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.
During a meeting, the President of Ukraine presented Samantha Power with the Order of Princess Olga of the 1st degree, celebrating her significant contribution to the development of interstate cooperation and consistent and important support of our state.
