The presidents discussed the readiness of both countries to extend the Strategic Offensive Limitation Treaty (START-3) for five years. During the conversation, Biden reaffirmed support of the United States for Ukraine's sovereignty and raised other issues of concern in the United States.
The White House emphasizes that Biden has made it clear that the United States will act decisively to protect its national interests in response to Russia's actions that harm the United States or its allies.
As we reported earlier, the Biden administration is looking for a new candidate for the post of U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.
"There was General Dayton, the procedure is almost over, but for now we assume that this issue is put on hold, and the new Biden administration will look for a new candidate for this position," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba emphasized.
