Vice President Biden sent Nancy Pelosi on a secret trip to Kyiv where she met with Ukraine Pres. Volodymyr Zelensky to express U.S. support.
Zelensky has repeatedly requested that Biden come to the capital city to demonstrate his solidarity with Ukraine as it endures its eighth year of war and occupation by neighboring Russia.
With Biden continuing to ignore all queries for a personal appearance, Zelensky was instead granted the meeting with Pelosi. Schiff also showed up to offer diplomatic support.
“Our team traveled to Kyiv to send a loud and clear message to the rest of the globe: America stands with Ukraine,” said Pelosi.
The most senior lawmaker from the U.S. to visit the embattled nation since Russia’s war started in February is California Democrat Nancy Pelosi, who is second in line to become president after the VP.
Her visit to Kiev is a clear sign of continuing US support for Ukraine’s resistance against Moscow’s occupation troops.
On the other side of the world, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was joined by several others on a congressional mission that followed Sec. of State Anthony Blinken and Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin.
Pelosi stated, “Zelensky made clear that Ukraine was needing more security, humanitarian and economic assistance to address the terrible human toll taken by Pres. Putin’s diabolic invasion.”
“Our delegation has proudly carried the message that more American assistance is on its way,” she added.
The footage, released by the office of President Volodymyr Zelensky, showed Nancy Pelosi and other American politicians in Kyiv. In the video subsequently released by Pelosi’s staff, the speaker expresses her gratitude for his help in the war.
“We will win, and we will do it together,” Zelenskyy said.
“We are in this for the long haul,” Pelosi said. “We are here until we win it.”
The entire Congressional Delegation was made up of Democratic Representatives Gregory Meeks of NY, who is in charge of the Committee of House Foreign Affairs; Jim McGovern of MA, who heads the committee of House Rules; Jason Crow of CO; Adam Schiff of CA, who is in charge of the House Intel Committee; Bill Keating of MA; and Barbara Lee of CA.
