President Volodymyr Zelenskyy meets with Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi on May 1 in Kyiv.
It should be noted that for safety reasons this visit was not announced in advance.
"I am grateful to you for this signal of strong support from the United States, the people and the Congress — bicameral and bipartisan support. This shows that the United States today is a leader in strong support for Ukraine during the war against the aggression of the Russian Federation, and I would like to thank you for helping Ukraine defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity," the President said.
Zelenskyy stressed the importance of the address by President of the United States of America Joseph Biden to the Congress to provide Ukraine with financial assistance in the amount of USD 33 billion.
Pelosi noted that today Ukraine is heroically fighting for freedom, and the United States is ready to help Kyiv until this struggle is over.
Zelenskyy awarded the Order of Princess Olga to Nancy Pelosi.
