Andrii Yermak, the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, and Yulia Svyrydenko, First Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Economic Development and Trade, are currently in the United States advocating for crucial military and financial aid for Ukraine.
On their first day, Ukraine House hosted a meeting between the delegation and representatives of the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar communities. During this session, the Head of the President’s Office addressed the ongoing situation on the battlefield, highlighting Ukraine’s needs for defense and financial assistance. He stressed the importance of unity in the face of external threats and internal challenges, including propaganda, election influence, and cyberattacks.
“We must resist any attempts to split us. For its part, Ukraine is making every effort not only to overcome Russian military power but also to ensure unity,” Andriy Yermak emphasized.
Meanwhile, Yulia Svyrydenko outlined the Ukrainian government’s strategy for rebuilding and renovating Ukraine. She spoke about positioning Ukraine as a perspective and reliable country, urging investment for global prosperity. Additionally, she shared plans for creating conditions to bring back Ukrainians currently abroad to contribute to Ukraine’s rehabilitation. The key message she delivered to the community was her gratitude for standing with Ukraine for almost two years of unprovoked Russian aggression:
“We want to thank you for the continuous support of the Ukrainian people despite recent challenges, and we hope for further cooperation toward Ukrainian victory.”
