Pelosi Meets with Zelinsky to Promise Solidarity With Ukraine

May 2, 2022

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi landed in Kyiv on Saturday to deliver a message of U.S. solidarity to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Our delegation traveled to Kyiv to send an unmistakable and resounding message to the entire world: America stands firmly with Ukraine,” Pelosi said in a statement.

Pelosi was joined by several lawmakers on the congressional trip that came after Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin made the same journey last weekend.

Pelosi said Zelensky had made clear Ukraine needed more security, economic and humanitarian aid “to address the devastating human toll taken on the Ukrainian people by (President Vladimir) Putin’s diabolic invasion.”

“Our delegation proudly delivered the message that additional American support is on the way,” she said.

In footage released by Pelosi’s office, the speaker and Zelensky both thanked each other for their support in the war.

“We’ll win and we’ll win together,” he said.

Pelosi added: “We are here until victory is won.”

That kind of promise brings one word to mind: quagmire. Have we forgotten Afghanistan so soon?
