She led a Congressional delegation to Kyiv, her visit represents a big show of solidarity for Ukraine’s fight against Moscow’s invasion.
According to a video from the Ukrainian presidency, Pelosi said to President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, “We believe that we are visiting you to say thank you for your fight for freedom… Our commitment is to be there for you until the fight is done.”
“Our delegation travelled to Kyiv to send an unmistakable and resounding message to the entire world: America stands firmly with Ukraine.”
“We are here until victory is won,” she added.
She also denounced Russia’s “diabolic invasion” by President Vladimir Putin.
Moscow refers to its efforts as a “special military operation” aimed at disarming Ukraine and eradicating anti-Russian nationalism instilled by the West.
Russia, according to Ukraine and the West, has initiated an unprovoked aggressive campaign.
Zelenskyy thanked the US on Twitter, “for helping protect our state’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”

Since Russia’s conflict began on February 24, Poland has taken in more than three million Ukrainian refugees.
Pelosi and other members of the delegation commended the bravery of the Ukrainian people at a press conference in Poland.
According to Schiff, US lawmakers met with Zelenskyy and his administration for three hours, discussing sanctions, weaponry, and aid assistance.
Between Ukraine and the United States, Schiff vowed, intelligence-sharing will continue.
“This is a struggle of freedom against tyranny,” Schiff said. “And in that struggle, Ukraine is on the front lines.”
McGovern claimed that Russia’s war had far-reaching ramifications beyond Ukraine, claiming that it was exacerbating a global food crisis that would be disastrous for the poor.
“Putin’s brutal war is no longer only a war against the people of Ukraine. It’s also a war against the world’s most vulnerable. I don’t think that Putin cares if he starves the world,” he added.
