WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued the following statement Thursday after meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine:

“This morning I was proud to welcome President Zelensky to the Capitol.

And I was glad our colleagues had an opportunity to hear from him firsthand and ask questions about the state of Ukraine’s counteroffensive.

“At the risk of repeating myself, American support for Ukraine is not charity. It’s an investment in our own direct interests – not least because degrading Russia’s military power helps to deter our primary strategic adversary, China.”
