At a meeting with representatives of the Administration and the US Congress, who arrived in Kyiv to participate in the official inauguration ceremony, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky expressed his hope to meet US President Donald Trump soon, reports the Press-service of the President.
"The United States is a powerful and significant partner for Ukraine, primarily in overcoming Russia's aggression. We will not be able to overcome Russian aggression in the Donbas and Crimea on our own. That's why we need your help. I want to urge the United States to continue to tighten sanctions against Russia," said Ukrainian President.
Zelensky also thanked the United States for its assistance in the security sector and added that he is ready to carry out transparent, open, and democratic reforms in Ukraine.
US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker, and US Senator Ron Johnson participated in the meeting.
