"We strongly oppose Russia's attempts to annex Crimea, we strongly oppose Russia's aggression in Donbas, in Eastern Ukraine. And we strongly support Ukraine and intend to strengthen this support - whether in the field of security, economy or in efforts to strengthen its own democracy," he said.
He also noted that Ukraine is responding to the challenges of external aggression, as well as its own challenges, including corruption.
"We are set to work on all this," he added.
Earlier it was reported that U.S. Secretary of State Blinken is ready to discuss with members of the US Congress new sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
On March 5, U.S. imposed sanctions on oligarch Kolomoysky due to "involvement in significant corruption." It was noted that in his official capacity as a Governor of Ukraine’s Dnipropetrovsk Oblast from 2014 to 2015, Kolomoysky was involved in corrupt acts that undermined rule of law and the Ukrainian public’s faith in their government’s democratic institutions and public processes, including using his political influence and official power for his personal benefit.
