Kelly Statement after Senators Meeting with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy

Today, Arizona Senator and U.S. Navy combat veteran Mark Kelly joined his Senate colleagues for a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to discuss Ukraine’s progress in defending against Putin’s invasion and the importance of U.S. support to their success. Kelly, who has traveled to Ukraine twice this year and met with Ukrainian pilots training in Tucson, released the following statement after the meeting: 

“President Zelenskyy made a strong case for how additional U.S. support will allow Ukraine to continue their progress retaking their country from Russia. Abandoning Ukraine at this moment without the ammunition and weapons they need would be a massive gift to Putin and a strategic error for our own national security. Time is running out, and I will continue working with my colleagues in the Senate to find the necessary agreement to move this critical aid package forward.”
