Russia-Ukraine war live updates: Pelosi visits Kyiv to meet with Zelenskyy

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi led a small Congressional delegation to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv.

“We are visiting you to say thank you for your fight for freedom,” Pelosi said in a video posted by Zelenskyy’s office on Telegram early Sunday. “Your fight is a fight for everyone, and so our commitment is to be there for you until the fight is done.”

Pelosi is now the highest-ranking American leader to visit Ukraine since the start of the war. The show of support comes as Western military aid increasingly flows into Ukraine in an effort to aid the country’s defensive fight against Russia’s eastern offensive and potentially weaken Moscow for the long term.

But while Washington and its allies appear emboldened by Ukrainian forces’ staunch defense, in places like Mariupol the situation remains dire. A small group of women and children were finally evacuated from the steel plant that is the last stronghold in the besieged and bombed-out port city on Saturday, but many more remain trapped.
