| Leave a Comment | News All

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is expected to visit Capitol Hill next week as he seeks additional military and humanitarian aid from the United States.

Zelenskyy’s trip comes as Congress is debating providing as much as $21 billion in aid to Ukraine, which is fighting a bloody war against Russia. The aid package would include weapons, ammunition, and other military supplies, as well as humanitarian assistance for the millions of Ukrainians who have been displaced by the war.

The trip was confirmed by two congressional aides, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the plans.

Zelenskyy is expected to meet with President Biden and other top US officials during his visit. He is also likely to address a joint session of Congress, where he is expected to appeal for more help from the United States.

The United States has been a major supporter of Ukraine since the Russian invasion began in February. The Biden administration has already provided billions of dollars in aid to Ukraine, including weapons, ammunition, and humanitarian assistance.

The $21 billion aid package that is currently being debated by Congress would be the largest single piece of aid ever provided to Ukraine. It would also be a major show of support for Ukraine as it fights for its survival.

Zelenskyy’s visit to Capitol Hill is a sign of the importance that the United States attaches to the war in Ukraine. The United States is committed to helping Ukraine defend itself against Russia, and Zelenskyy’s visit is an opportunity for him to personally thank the American people for their support.
