Nuland told journalists that she has spent two very busy days in Kyiv and met with a number of high-ranking Ukrainian officials, including President Volodymyr Zelensky and Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, members of the government and parliamentarians, as well as civil society activists.
"My main message is a message of solidarity with the people of Ukraine at this difficult time when Putin has reached a new level of barbarism, depriving the homes of civilians of electricity, heat and water. However, Ukraine is winning this war, and Putin is losing it. You, Ukrainians, are fighting for all of us, and we support you so that Ukraine withstands and wins. The victory of Ukraine will mean the victory of freedom," Nuland said, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
