Secretary Blinken took a trip to Kyiv yesterday to meet with Zelenskyy in a show of solidarity, shortly after UK’s PM Boris Johnson did the same.
“This was, in our judgment, an important moment to be there, an important moment for Ukraine, for the war — an important moment to have face-to-face conversations in detail about the extraordinary support that we’ve provided: security, economic, humanitarian, as well as the massive pressure that we’ve been exerting on Russia,” said Secretary Blinken.
Blinken talked to Zelenskyy about the return of the U.S. diplomats to Ukraine next week. Biden intends to nominate Bridget Brink, currently serving as the U.S. ambassador to Slovakia as a new ambassador to Ukraine.
