Zelensky thanks U.S. Senate Committee chairman for principled stance on Russian aggression

President Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked Chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Bob Menendez for his principled stance on Russian aggression and support for Ukraine.

He wrote about this on Twitter.

"I thank Senator Bob Menendez for his principled stance on Russian aggression and support for Ukraine. We fight for common values. I agree that Nord Stream 2 must be stopped and Ukraine should be integrated into NATO," Zelensky noted.

He also added that he looks forward to meeting with Menendez in Washington.

As Ukrinform reported, on April 21, the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the Ukraine Security Partnership Act of 2021 (S. 814), which provides for increased support for Ukraine against the background of Russian aggression.

The Ukraine Security Partnership Act will provide Ukraine with up to USD 300 million a year in military assistance until 2026. The document envisages, in particular, the U.S. assistance in providing Ukraine with defense aid from third countries. In addition, this includes the allocation of USD 4 million annually until 2026 for the training of Ukrainian officers.
