Ukraine is working on the organization of a meeting between Volodymyr Zelensky and newly elected U.S. President Joe Biden. This was stated by the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Volodymyr Yelchenko during a briefing.

"This will be one of the first issues which we will discuss with the new administration," said Yelchenko.

He also added that the Ukrainian side was considering a possible visit of Zelensky to the United States, but there should be a telephone conversation between the presidents first.

Yelchenko said the new US administration and Biden would focus on specific Ukrainian issues.

"Firstly, the fight against corruption, because it is time to move from words to deeds. Secondly, it is a reform of the judiciary system," the official added.

As we reported earlier, U.S. Chargé d'Affaires in Ukraine Kristina A. Kvien assured that her country would continue to support Ukraine.

As the President-elect and his administration work to shape the domestic and foreign policy of the United States in the coming months, let me reassure you of one thing: The United States will remain steadfast in its support for a prosperous, democratic, and free Ukraine, secure within its internationally recognized borders including the Donbas and Crimea, and resilient against Russian aggression,” reads the message.
