A delegation of American senators, Jeanne Shaheen, Robert Portman and Christopher Murphy, reached Ukraine. The officials came to this country to discuss Ukraine's strengthening amidst the Russian aggression. Yevhen Yenin, deputy foreign minister posted this on Facebook.

According to the U.S. Embassy, while staying in Ukraine, the U.S. senators will also address the extension of reforms aimed at strengthening the democracy in Ukraine.

During the visit, Blinken promised Ukraine support in its struggle with Russia.

Earlier, the Senate initiated the new bill to support religious freedom in Ukraine and hold Russia accountable for such violations. The corresponding bill was presented in the Senate. This is stated on the website of the US Helsinki Commission.

The bill to support religious freedom in Ukraine was initiated by a bipartisan group of US senators.

The bill to support freedom of religion in Ukraine will allow and require the US President to take into account especially serious violations of religious freedom in the Ukrainian territory of Crimea and Donbas. The bill confirms that "the US policy is never to recognize an illegal attempt to annex Crimea by the Russian government or to secede any part of Ukrainian territory by military force."

Earlier the US Senate Committee supported the bill on partnership with Ukraine in the field of security. The bill, in particular, provides for an increase in the annual US military aid to Ukraine. Introducing it, the chairman of the Committee, Senator from the US Democratic Party Robert Menendez called the initiative "a timely signal" in support of Ukraine.
