In Trip to Kyiv, Pelosi Vows U.S. Will Back Ukraine “Until the Fight Is Done”

HeadlineMay 02, 2022

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi became the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit Ukraine over the weekend. Her surprise trip came just days after President Biden asked Congress for an additional $33 billion for Ukraine. During a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Pelosi vowed the United States would keep backing Ukraine militarily “until the fight is done.”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “We believe that we are visiting you to say thank you for your fight for freedom, that we are on a frontier of freedom and that your fight is a fight for everyone. And so our commitment is to be there for you until the fight is done.”

On Friday, the Pentagon confirmed U.S. troops are now training Ukrainian soldiers in Germany on the use of advanced weapons. Over the weekend Russia Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the U.S. and NATO should stop arming Ukraine if they are “really interested in resolving the Ukraine crisis.”
