"We are sincerely grateful to the United States, President Biden, the Congress, you personally and all Americans for their unprecedented support of Ukraine. It is extremely important for us to have such a reliable ally. I appreciate that you visited Odesa yesterday. Even despite the fact that the city is experiencing intensified Russian missile terror these days. It is extremely important to personally see what is happening in Ukraine today," Zelensky said.

He praised active interaction with USAID and noted the important role of the Agency in consolidating assistance to Ukraine.

The parties also focused on discussing further joint steps to meet Ukraine's priority needs in the face of continued Russian aggression, particularly in the areas of social protection, healthcare and education.
