LVIV, Ukraine — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell joins a list of American leaders who have traveled to Ukraine, leading a delegation of four Republican senators to meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv.

Zelenskyy described Saturday’s visit as “a strong signal of bipartisan support for Ukraine from the US Congress.”

The senses. Susan Collins, John Cornyn and John Barrasso joined McConnell on this trip.

Other senior US officials who met with Zelenskyy in Ukraine include:

  • Secretary of State Anthony Blinken
  • Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

The meeting came as Zelenskyy’s government announced that it had driven Russian troops out of the country’s second largest city, Kharkiv.
