Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to Visit Capitol and Meet with Senators

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is scheduled to visit the Capitol and hold a meeting with senators on Thursday, according to a Senate leadership aide. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will host an all-senators meeting with Zelenskyy at 10 a.m. ET, although the location is yet to be determined. There has been no response from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s office regarding this matter.

Zelenskyy’s Upcoming Meetings and UN General Assembly Attendance

In addition to meeting with senators, Zelenskyy is also expected to have a meeting with President Joe Biden at the White House on Thursday, as confirmed by a reliable source. He will also attend the United Nations General Assembly in New York City during his visit to the U.S., as stated by a senior Ukrainian official.

Previous Meeting Between Biden and Zelenskyy

President Biden previously met with Zelenskyy in July at the NATO summit in Vilnius, Lithuania. During their bilateral meeting, Biden expressed his confidence in Ukraine’s inclusion in NATO and the progress it has made. This meeting set the stage for continued cooperation between the two countries.

U.S. Commitment to Ukraine’s Sovereignty and Democracy

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently visited Kyiv and met with Zelenskyy and other senior Ukrainian officials. The purpose of the visit was to demonstrate the United States’ unwavering commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, and democracy, particularly in the face of Russia’s aggression. The visit also saw the announcement of additional U.S. aid to Ukraine, including foreign military financing, humanitarian demining assistance, and support for law enforcement efforts in liberated regions.

Zelenskyy’s Plea for Support in Congress

Last year, Zelenskyy addressed a joint meeting of Congress, appealing for continued support as Republicans were preparing to take control of the House. He emphasized that the aid provided by the United States is not charity but an investment in global security and democracy. Zelenskyy urged U.S. lawmakers to demonstrate to the world that the United States stands with Ukraine and that their decisions can literally save millions of lives.
