Ukraine’s Zelensky Visits Washington, D.C., Seeking Additional Aid to Counter Russia

HeadlineSep 22, 2023

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has arrived in Canada after wrapping up a visit to Washington, D.C., where he met Thursday with U.S. lawmakers, military leaders and President Joe Biden. During a speech at the National Archives, Zelensky thanked the United States for the $113 billion in aid to Ukraine approved by Congress, saying the money is helping to prevent a wider war in Europe.

President Volodymyr Zelensky: “If we fall, half of Europe would again be in danger of being in Moscow’s sphere of influence. But American investment in Ukrainian security and global protection of freedom is working 100%, every cent.”

Meanwhile, Poland’s prime minister says he will no longer send arms to Ukraine and will instead focus on arming Poland with modern weaponry. The move comes amid a trade dispute that’s seen Poland ban imports of Ukrainian grain and other food products.
