U.S. Congress delegation pledges full support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity

A delegation of the United States Congress has assured Ukraine of the full support for its territorial integrity and independence.

Congressman John Garamendi, Chairman of the Readiness Subcommittee within the House Armed Services Committee, said this during a meeting with Ukrainian Defense Minister Andriy Zahorodniuk in Kyiv on Friday, October 4, the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported.

“The delegation in Kyiv consists of both Republicans and Democrats. There are representatives of the House Armed Services Committee and other important committees. We arrived in Ukraine to send an important clear message together – the United States supports Ukraine. The U.S. Congress supports your country’s efforts in confronting the armed aggression of the Russian Federation,” the congressman noted.

According to him, the congressmen want to understand the needs in order to complete the formation of budget proposals, which will include support for Ukraine and its Armed Forces.

In addition, the U.S. congressmen stressed the need for further dialogue and cooperation with the Defense Ministry and the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As reported, on October 3, the U.S. Department of State adopted a decision on the possible sale to Ukraine of 150 Javelin missiles and related equipment and support for an estimated cost not to exceed $39.2 million.

  1. One of very few issues in the United States which has overwhelming support of both Democrats and Republicans.
    The United States will support the people of Ukraine…… period. End of discussion.

    • The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. The US and UK are in breach of the Budapest Memorandum and have been for the past five and a half years. Since the UK does not take high magnitude action without the support of the senior partner, the onus is on America to show leadership and honour Budapest in words, spirit and deeds. This means taking specific actions against the terror state that would force a withdrawal. There is no chance of this from the Dems and no chance from the GOP, for at least as long as gospodin Trumpkov runs the show.

    Again, I’m happy that my country supports Ukraine. With better presidents than Obumer and Trumpet, this support could have real meaning in that it would be so far-reaching as to force the mafiosi out of Ukraine. But, despite our shortcomings, our support is far and above from the “support” it gets from the Europeans.
