White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, in talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy at the World Economic Forum in Davos, will convey a message from U.S. leader Joe Biden regarding the war with Russia, Bloomberg reports.

The White House aims for Ukraine to shift its strategy against Russian occupiers from offense to defense.

Bloomberg highlights that Zelenskyy "understands why that makes sense, although he won’t like to hear it or to say so publicly."

It is also reported that the Ukrainian president will deliver his response to Biden and "remind the US Congress that Ukraine can only play proper defense if the U.S. and its allies guarantee that it has the wherewithal."

The World Economic Forum in Davos commenced on January 15, bringing together politicians from over 100 countries, businessmen, and public figures to discuss global threats and challenges. Key issues include the conflict in the Middle East, the war in Ukraine, and the technological breakthrough of artificial intelligence.
