Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is to begin a working visit to the United States on Monday, 11 December, and will meet with US President Joe Biden.
Quote: "On December 11, Volodymyr Zelenskyy will arrive in the United States for a working visit. Ukraine's President will meet with US President Joe Biden and hold a series of meetings and negotiations.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy will focus on securing unity among the US, Europe, and the rest of the world in supporting Ukraine's defence against Russian aggression, as well as strengthening the international order based on rules and respect for the sovereignty of nations.
Key topics for discussion in Washington will include further defense cooperation between Ukraine and the United States, particularly through joint projects on the production of weapons and air defense systems, as well as the coordination of efforts between our countries in the coming year."
Details: At that, the White House website reports that Biden invited Zelenskyy to meet on Tuesday, 12 December, to "underscore the United States’ unshakeable commitment to supporting the people of Ukraine as they defend themselves against Russia’s brutal invasion".
"As Russia ramps up its missile and drone strikes against Ukraine, the leaders will discuss Ukraine’s urgent needs and the vital importance of the United States’ continued support at this critical moment", reads the message.
