US President Joe Biden met with Ukrainian Foreign and Defense Ministers Dmitry Kuleba and Oleksiy Reznikov in Poland, Bloomberg reports.
Earlier, the White House announced that Biden would come to a meeting between Kuleba and Reznikov with their American counterparts, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, in Warsaw.
Biden joined them about an hour after the meeting began and stayed there for about 40 minutes, Bloomberg notes.
Blinken and Austin pledged that the United States will continue to provide humanitarian and economic assistance to Ukraine, State Department spokesman Ned Price said.
Kuleba tweeted after talking to Blinken and Austin that meetings like this allow “to look for practical solutions in both the political and defense spheres” to strengthen Ukraine's ability to resist Russia.
Biden also met on Saturday with Polish President Andrzej Duda and Ukrainian refugees.
Earlier, the American leader took part in NATO, G7 and EU summits. The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that the EU and the US have agreed on a new energy partnership. In particular, we are talking about deliveries this year of at least 15 billion cubic meters of American LNG. In the coming years, countries plan to achieve supplies of at least 50 billion cubic meters per year. This will replace 1/3 of all Russian gas supplies to Europe, von der Leyen noted.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking of “sanctions lawlessness” West, said that Western countries have declared Russia a hybrid “total” war to destroy it.
