President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has met with the US Secretary of State and US Senators to discuss a possible increase in military assistance to Ukraine. This was discussed in Zelensky's Zoom interview with Axios, the full transcript of which was published on the documentcloud.org. website. 

"I had a meeting in person with US Senators that came over, and with the United States Secretary of State, and we discussed possible increase in military assistance. We talked about… security, about enhancing security in the Black and the Azov seas, along the shoreline, for our position is rather weak there, in my opinion: Russia is virtually dominating all of the Black Sea, it is true, and we admit that, and we would like to have a strong force there — for defense purposes only, for defending our country and our borders," Zelensky stressed.
