Zelenskyy urges US to keep supporting Ukraine as Americans head to polls

Lviv, Ukraine, Nov 8 (EFE).- Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on the United States on Tuesday to maintain its constant support for Ukraine until his country regains full territorial integrity.

Zelenskyy’s post on Twitter came on the day of the United States midterm elections, which will determine the structure of the US House of Representatives, as well as the US Senate.

“I call on you to maintain unwavering unity, as it is now, until that very day when we all hear those important words we have been dreaming of … Until we hear that peace has finally been restored. Democracies must not stop on their way to victory,” he said as he thanked Washington for awarding him the 2022 Liberty Medal.

Recent polls show Republicans are poised to make solid gains and could dominate both houses, currently controlled by the Democrats.

Such results could make the second half of Democrat US president Joe Biden’s mandate more problematic.

Biden has been Ukraine’s main Western ally since the start of the Russian invasion on February 24, 2022.

Several members of the Republican Party are in favor of cutting or suspending economic aid provided by the US to Ukraine to support its defense against Russia.EFE
