Batkivshchyna Party leader Yulia Tymoshenko met today with the chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Bob Corker, during her working visit to the United States.
They discussed the situation in Ukraine, in particular Russia’s aggression against the country and the United States providing Ukraine with lethal weapons.
Yulia Tymoshenko thanked the U.S. Senate for its principled support of Ukraine in defending its sovereignty and territorial integrity. She also stressed the need to not forget about Crimea, which Russia annexed illegally.
Bob Corker noted Yulia Tymoshenko and her Party’s strong position in defending Ukraine’s national interests.
Special attention was given to the issue of battling corruption in the upper echelons of government, and the need to create and strengthen anti-corruption institutions in Ukraine.
