Senate Delegation Visits Ukraine

They confirmed support for war aid. 

A delegation from the U.S. Senate has returned to Washington after a four-day visit to Europe during which they made a surprise visit to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and met with that nation’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky. 

The group was led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and included Senators Susan Collins of Maine, John Cornyn of Texas, and John Barrasso of Wyoming. 

In large part, the delegation reassured Ukraine that it had bipartisan support in the U.S. in its ongoing effort to repel the Russian invasion. They also signaled support for the NATO bids of Sweden and Finland. 

Senator Collins stated, “In Kyiv, I met with Ukrainian President Zelensky, who has united his country with his extraordinary leadership. I assured him of Congress’ bipartisan commitment to give Ukraine the military and humanitarian aid they urgently need to protect their people and defend their country.” 

The group also met with the Swedish Prime Minister and Finnish President and expressed tacit support for those nations’ NATO membership applications. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for U.S. and NATO officials in their responses to Russia.
  • For the president and his administration as Russia threatens nuclear war.
  • For discernment for both houses of Congress as they continue to send billions in aid to Ukraine.
