Nancy Pelosi Meets With Zelenskyy in Kyiv

AllSides Summary

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv to discuss Putin's ongoing invasion.

The three-hour meeting, which was notably unannounced, included discussions centered around the U.S. granting additional economic, security and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine. Pelosi thanked Zelenskyy for continuing to fight for his country's freedom and vowed that the U.S. would support Ukraine "until the fight is done." The two leaders also discussed strategies for rebuilding the nation once the war is over. The Biden administration is looking to grant Zelenskyy another $800 million military aid package as Russia seeks to take full control of Donbas and the southern region of Ukraine.

Pelosi's visit to Ukraine was prominently covered across the political spectrum. CNN (Left bias) noted that Pelosi's visit "marks a significant measure of commitment to supporting Ukraine from the most senior level of US leadership." Conversely, Breitbart (Right bias) labeled Pelosi's visit a "secret mission" and emphasized how Biden "continues to steadfastly ignore all entreaties to make a personal appearance."
