“We got a clear picture of the challenges and problems faced by the Ukrainian army and people in the war zone, and this will give us additional arguments to convince us on our return to the US to continue providing much needed aid to Ukraine”, –  Senator Jeanne Shaheen said during the briefing.

Republican Senator Rob Portman said the meeting with the Ukrainian president also “discussed increasing aid to Ukraine to strengthen its fighting capacity.”
