Zelensky said he discussed US support for Ukraine and tightening sanctions on Russia with the delegation.
“I believe that this visit once again demonstrates the strength of bipartisan support for our state, the strength of ties between the Ukrainian and American nations,” Zelensky said.
The Ukrainian president added in his address Saturday he “expressed Gratitude for the historic decision to renew the Lend Lease program” during the GOP delegation’s visit.
Zelensky said earlier Saturday on his Instagram account the GOP delegation visit was “a strong signal of bipartisan support for Ukraine from the United States Congress and the American people.”
He added on Instagram: “Thank you for your leadership in helping us in our struggle not only for our country, but also for democratic values and freedoms. We really appreciate it.”
Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, John Barrasso of Wyoming and John Cornyn of Texas were also seen meeting Zelensky in video and photos posted to the Ukrainian president’s social media accounts.
It was unclear on Saturday evening whether the delegation was still in the Ukrainian capital.
A statement posted on Zelensky’s official website following the meeting with the GOP Senators noted the Ukrainian leader “expressed hope that the US Senate will promptly approve a package of additional funding to support the Ukrainian people.”
