The head of the Republican Party of the United States and leader of the formation in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, has led the visit made this Saturday by a delegation from the group to the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv, to express its support for the president of the country, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in the war against Russia.

McConnell was accompanied by Maine Senator Susan Collins and Wyoming and Texas Senators John Barrasso and John Cornyn, according to Zelenski’s office.

The Republicans’ trip comes two weeks after the Speaker of the House of Representatives and one of the top officials of the ruling Democratic Party, Nancy Pelosi, did the same.

In a statement, the Ukrainian president has assured that the visit of the Republicans sent a strong signal of the bipartisan support that Ukraine is receiving in the defense of the territory, and that he has asked the US senators to reinforce the sanctions against Russia.

“We believe that Russia should be recognized as a state sponsor of terrorism,” declared the Ukrainian president, who took the opportunity to request the rapid approval of the aid package of 40.1 billion dollars withheld on Thursday by Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky when he insisted that the consignment be supervised by an inspector general.

“I was sworn in before the Constitution of the United States, not before any foreign nation, and no matter how sympathetic the cause arouses because I have sworn to defend the national security of the United States of America,” the senator declared, before assuring that “You cannot save Ukraine by condemning the US economy”
