On Thursday, August 21, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk met with the senior United States Senator, a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services William Nelson.

The Prime Minister welcomed the initiatives of the American legislators aimed at expanding military and technical cooperation with Ukraine. Such support, according to Arseniy Yatsenyuk, is important today, especially in the context of the current Russian aggression against Ukraine.

 The PM highly evaluated the principled stance of the American administration to protect the independence and democratic choice of Ukraine and to support the struggle of the Ukrainian people against Russia-backed terrorists.

Apart from that, Arseniy Yatsenyuk and William Nelson discussed urgent issues of energy security on the European continent. The Head of Government stressed the need to find a joint with the European Union solution, how to reduce the dependence of Ukrainian consumers on gas supplies from the Russian Federation.
