Updated . Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted that today Ukraine is fighting for the right of peoples to freely choose their own future.

“Russia is committing genocide against the Ukrainian people. It is committing war crimes that the whole world is horrified of – torture, mass executions, rape. Europe has not seen such crimes since World War II,” he said.

The President called the entry into force of the American law on lend-lease and the protection of democracy in Ukraine an outstanding event for our country. After all, strengthening the defense and financial support of our state is extremely important in countering the armed aggression of Russia.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also expressed hope that the US Senate will promptly approve an additional funding package to support the Ukrainian people, which has already been considered in the House of Representatives and increased from $33 billion to $39.6 billion.

We will remind, earlier the leader of the Republicans in the Senate Mitch McConnell called on US President Joe Biden to provide Ukraine with “any weapons that they think they need” to defend against Russia. At the same time, he clarified that “all necessary weapons” should be provided to Ukraine without taking into account the main defensive weapons that the United States supplied in the past
