Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky met a Republican congressional delegation from the US on Monday and thanked them for their support for Ukraine, the president’s office said in a statement on Tuesday.
The delegation to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv was led by Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Rep. Mike Turner.
Zelensky updated the delegation on the situation at the frontline and “outlined the forecast for its development in the coming months,” his office said.
“Bicameral and bipartisan support from the United States, President Biden, and the entire American people played a decisive role in our country’s ability to resist Russia in the war for our freedom and democratic values,” Zelensky said.
“We will win because we are fighting for our freedom and the freedom of our children. And we highly appreciate the help you provide us — not only to our army, but also political and financial support to the Ukrainian people: teachers, medical workers, pensioners.”
The Ukrainian President also called for additional military support and for the swift delivery of weapons and other equipment from the US that has already been promised.
