U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan during a visit to Kiev urged confidence in continued support from the United States, which is currently blocked by domestic political strife.

Sullivan spoke with the head of the Ukrainian presidential office, Andriy Yermak, and other senior officials. The National Security Council in Washington announced that President Joe Biden’s security advisor underlined the many different aid programs for the country brutally attacked by Russia.

The topics

At the same time, Sullivan called on the US Congress to release new money for Ukraine. Support for Kiev has been blocked for months by disputes between Republicans and Democrats in the US Parliament.

“We know for sure that President Biden’s administration and the entire team are doing everything they can today to pass the necessary relief package,” Jermak said after the meeting. According to him, the conversation was about preparation for the upcoming NATO summit in Washington. There was also discussion about the planned summit on President Volodymyr Zelensky’s peace formula, which is to take place in Switzerland.

Selenskyjs Plan

Zelensky’s plan calls for a complete withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine. But he is also concerned with compliance with international law, nuclear safety and a functioning global food supply. With these issues, Ukraine is trying to get developing and emerging countries on its side.

Zelensky also spoke about this with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday. According to the President’s Office, Zelensky emphasized the importance of India’s participation in the summit. India has traditionally had close ties with Russia and is one of the most important customers for Russian oil, which the West no longer buys. New Delhi remains neutral on the war of aggression against Ukraine that has been going on for over two years, but has warned Moscow about the possible use of nuclear weapons.
