President Zelenskyy Hosts Bipartisan Delegation of US Congress Members


On July 1, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with a bipartisan delegation of members from the US House of Representatives, led by Chairman of the Intelligence Committee Mike Turner, alongside Congress members Betty McCollum, John Joyce, Ronny Jackson, and Tony Gonzales.

This was reported by the Office of the President.

During the meeting, the President briefed the congressmen on the frontline situation and the urgent needs of the defense forces. They discussed key areas for further American assistance, including additional air defense systems and accompanying missiles.

"It is critically important because Patriot systems help save lives and protect infrastructure. We are counting on additional deliveries of these systems in the near future," stated Zelenskyy.

President Zelenskyy also discussed with the congressmen strategies for increasing sanctions pressure on Russia.

“I thank US President Joe Biden, both chambers and parties of Congress, and the entire American people for their unwavering leadership in supporting Ukraine,” Zelenskyy said.

Earlier in June, the White House clarified that Ukraine can use American weapons to hit any Russian border forces that are attacking from their side of the border, not just in the Kharkiv region. However, the policy of prohibiting long-range strikes inside Russia "has not changed."
