A Ukrainian delegation headed by the economy minister arrived in the US on Sunday for talks on cooperation and support for Kyiv, presidential aide Andriy Yermak has said.

The delegation led by Yulia Svyrydenko will discuss "the President's formula for peace, strengthening Ukraine's defence, comprehensively deepening our cooperation and many other important topics," Yermak said in a post on social media.

He added: “I will have meetings in the White House, Congress, think tanks and with representatives of civil society organisations.”

Ukrainian officials including President Volodymyr Zelensky are regularly meeting with Western leaders to try to stave off conflict fatigue.

The war is now in its 21st month and Ukraine is struggling to gain ground in its counteroffensive, AFP reports.

“I am grateful to our partners for their support of Ukraine. Together we are strong,” Yermak said.


Elsewhere, Germany's defence minister on Sunday, Nov. 12, announced Berlin would double its 2024 military aid for war-torn Ukraine, which is struggling to oust occupying Russian troops, to 8 billion euros ($8.5 billion).

“This is a strong signal to Ukraine, showing we are not giving up on it” when international attention is focused on the Israel-Hamas war, Boris Pistorius told television channel ARD.
