"Ukraine asks all its friends in the US Senate to support the law on the protection of Europe's energy security," Zelensky wrote.
Meanwhile, the US Senate plans to vote for a sanctions bill against Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline on January 14.
It is reported that the bill was proposed by Republican Senator Ted Cruz.
According to the text obtained by the publication, Cruz's bill requires pipeline sanctions to be imposed within 15 days of passage and allows Congress to vote to renew the sanctions if the president refuses to do so.
The bill needs 60 votes to pass, and Cruz and other Republicans are confident they will reach that mark.
“We’ll win that vote overwhelmingly,” a senior Republican aide told.
The vote carries obvious political risk for Democrats, many of whom opposed Joe Biden's decision last year to lift sanctions on the pipeline from Russia to Germany. In addition, the pipeline, which is nearly complete and awaiting certification, adds an additional element of complexity and drama amid a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine.
