"Ukraine badly needs its partners' support with additional professional assistance and equipment – assistance on the ground and special equipment. The United States is considering such a possibility.

The officials also discussed cooperation between Ukraine and the U.S. on legal issues, as well as the format of the U.S. joint work with Ukraine in the task force for the investigation into Russia's war crimes.

The sides also discussed cooperation in the sphere of fight against environmental crimes during the war, fight against corruption in Ukraine and cybersecurity issues.
