US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi led a Congressional delegation to Kyiv to meet Ukraine’s president in the latest show of support for the fight against Russia by a senior Western politician.
Pelosi, second in line to the presidency after the vice president, is the highest-ranking American leader to visit Ukraine since the start of the war, and her visit marks a major show of support for the country’s struggle against Moscow’s invasion.
“We believe that we are visiting you to say thank you for your fight for freedom… Our commitment is to be there for you until the fight is done,” Pelosi told President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, according to a video from the Ukrainian presidency.
