President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky met with President of the United States Joseph Biden, who arrived in Ukraine for the first time since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion.

The Head of State met the distinguished guest at the entrance to the Mariyinsky Palace in the capital’s downtown.

After the introduction of the members of the Ukrainian and American delegations, the Presidents of Ukraine and the United States had a face-to-face conversation.

Volodymyr Zelensky noted that Joseph Biden's visit was an extremely important signal of support for Ukraine and Ukrainians.

"Thank you very much, Mr. President. This is a significant moment of support for Ukraine," he said.

The Head of State emphasized that Joseph Biden personally and the entire American society had been with Ukraine from the very beginning of the full-scale war unleashed by Russia.

"The first phone call supporting Ukraine came from the White House. Thank you for your leadership. I also thank you for the bipartisan support, for the support of the Congress," Volodymyr Zelensky said.

The President of Ukraine noted that he would talk to the President of the United States about the situation on the frontline and about the Ukrainian people facing ordeals.

"What we have to do to stop the war, to succeed in this war, to make Ukraine even stronger, and how to gain victory this year," he said.

For his part, Joseph Biden noted the importance of his presence in Ukraine today, which demonstrates the U.S. support for the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Ukrainian state.

"I think it would be critically important to leave no doubt that the United States supports Ukraine in its war against brutal aggression," the U.S. President said.

The U.S. President said he was glad to visit Kyiv again.

"Much has changed since my last trip. Terrible things have happened, an invasion, but at the same time, the Ukrainian people have stepped up in a way that very few people have ever had in their defense. And they helped us embrace the notion of democracy," Joseph Biden said.

He also conveyed greetings from members of Congress. According to Joseph Biden, they were very impressed by Volodymyr Zelensky's recent address to Congress.

The U.S. President spoke about his intention to discuss how the United States and its allies can best help Ukraine in its fight for freedom and independence.
