Zelensky to Visit D.C. as Congress Debates Billions of Additional Dollars for Ukraine

HeadlineSep 18, 2023

Ukraine’s military says it has seized control of a village near the eastern city of Bakhmut that’s been the site of intense battles for weeks. It’s the second Russian-occupied village recaptured by Ukraine in recent days and comes ahead of a visit by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to the United States this week. Zelensky will address the United Nations General Assembly in person for the first time since Russia’s invasion in early 2022. He’ll then travel from New York to Washington, D.C., for talks with President Biden and congressional leaders. In August, President Biden asked Congress for an additional $13 billion in military aid to Ukraine and an additional $8 billion in humanitarian assistance.
