President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a phone call with President of the United States Joseph Biden.

“On behalf of all Ukrainians, I thank you personally, your administration, both parties of the Congress and the entire American nation for the decision that certainly brings our common victory closer. We look forward to the swift completion of this process in the Senate,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.

The Head of State informed of the situation on the frontline and today’s attack on Kharkiv resulting in the destruction of the TV tower.

“This has once again accentuated Ukraine’s critical need for air defense systems that must reliably shield Ukrainian cities and villages,” the President emphasized.

The leaders discussed in detail the possibility of supplying Ukraine with such systems, including with the participation of international partners.

The parties also discussed joint defense production and U.S. participation in the Air Force Capability Coalition. Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted the effectiveness of Ukraine’s use of long-range weapons.

“The United States is working dynamically to use Russia’s frozen assets for the benefit of Ukraine. This will reduce the financial burden on the United States and other partners, as well as limit the aggressor’s resources for waging war. We are grateful for this,” the Head of State noted.

The parties discussed signing a security agreement with the United States, preparations for the inaugural Peace Summit and the NATO Anniversary Summit in Washington in July 2024.
