Fifth President of Ukraine, leader of the European Solidarity Party Petro Poroshenko congratulated U.S. President-elect Joe Biden on the confirmation of his election at the Congress level.

He wished success to the democratic administration of the White House "on the difficult path of countering the many challenges of our time, of which there are only more."

In addition, the politician thanked the U.S. Republican administration.
