"The President’s looking forward to hearing from President Zelenskyy about their counteroffensive and about the progress they’re making, his assessment of what the battlefield looks like," Kirby said.

Kirby added that the two presidents will be meeting at the White House at a critical time, as Ukrainian Armed Forces gain ground in their counteroffensive and Russia is seeking military assistance from rogue regimes, including North Korea.

He added that President Zelenskyy has consistently, publicly and privately, expressed gratitude for the United States' support for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
