US Senators Visit Ukraine’s President in Kyiv

A delegation of US politicians – including the Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell – has met with Ukraine’s President Zelensky in Kyiv.

Senators Susan Collins, John Barrasso and John Cornyn were also on the trip.

Posting on social media, Zelensky said the visit was “a strong signal of bipartisan support for Ukraine from the United States Congress and the American people”.

“Thank you for your leadership in helping us fight not only for our country, but also for democratic values and freedoms.”

It comes at a time when US efforts to aid Ukraine have hit a domestic political stumbling block, with Senator Rand Paul blocking a key vote, as we covered yesterday.
