William Taylor, the U.S. Chargé d’Affaires in Ukraine congratulated Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky on the most recent "accomplishments" in Donbas and foreign policy.

"I congratulate President Zelenskyy and his foreign policy team for their recent accomplishments. Successfully bringing sailors and other political prisoners home; disengaging at Stanytsia Luhanska, Zolote, and Petrivske; and, most recently, securing the return of the Ukrainian ships that Russia illegally seized are concrete accomplishments on the road to peace, and all Ukrainians have reason to be proud. We also welcome the announcement of the upcoming Normandy Format summit and look forward to additional progress toward peace", reads the statement.

The official went on by saying that "there are always some who will seek to divide Ukraine, especially Russia".

"We must not listen to Russian disinformation", he insisted.

"Some local media stories have implausibly alleged members of the President’s team sympathize with Russia or believe former President Petro Poroshenko started the conflict. Russia is clearly responsible for the conflict. The United States stands firmly with Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression and in Ukraine’s quest for peace", the statement concludes.
