Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski has called on the U.S. Congress to adopt an aid package for Ukraine.

He said this at a joint press conference with British Foreign Secretary David Cameron, Ukrinform reports, citing Reuters.

"I would like you to treat this as our joint appeal to the House of Representatives of the United States and personally to Speaker Mike Johnson to put the aid package to a vote in the House. […] This is a crucial decision that will influence American credibility around the world," Sikorski said.
