President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy will try to push American senators towards a positive decision on new funding assistance for our country during the meeting, states political scientist Volodymyr Fesenko in a comment to RBC-Ukraine.

According to him, regarding the issue of new funding assistance to Ukraine from the United States, it's important to understand that not everything depends solely on our country.

"The problem is not with Ukraine, not that someone is against assistance. This is an internal political problem, differences in the fundamental issue of the Mexican border and changes in immigration legislation. And we, Israel, and to some extent, Taiwan have become hostages of this conflict," emphasizes the political analyst.

According to him, the sense of Zelenskyy's meeting with senators is to explain the difficult situation on the front and why it is essential to vote for assistance as soon as possible. The President of Ukraine will emotionally and rationally try to convince Congress representatives.

He suggests that there will be other information campaigns to persuade American society of the necessity of maintaining support, as ultimately, it aligns with the interests of the USA.


It was recently revealed that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy will visit the United States on December 11. He has a scheduled meeting with President Joe Biden.

Additionally, Zelenskyy is set to address American senators on December 12.

All of this is happening against the backdrop of disagreements in Congress regarding new funding assistance to Ukraine. Last week, the package including aid for Ukraine was rejected by Republicans in the Senate. They demand the White House strengthen border security.
