(PatrioticPost.com)- President Volodymyr Zelenskky delivered an outline of the major subjects via closed caption translation at a news conference following his in-person meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Pelosi had led a Congressional delegation on an unexpected trip to Kyiv to meet with Zelenskyy and reiterate US support for the embattled country.
Zelenskyy described his discussions with Nancy Pelosi as “substantive” and “multifaceted,” referring to the military and financial aid that the US has previously supplied, as well as the sanctions against Russia.
According to reports, the Ukrainian president thanked the US for reinstating the Lend-Lease program from World War II, which allows the US to lease or lend weaponry to Ukraine in their war with Russia. He also thanked the United States for planning a $33 billion aid package. The assistance package must yet be approved by Congress.
According to Zelenskyy, he and Pelosi also discussed measures to enhance sanctions on Russia, which may assist in preventing Russia from circumventing current and future penalties and support a cease-fire.
Zelenskyy said he and Pelosi also spoke about ways to strengthen sanctions against Russia that could help prevent Russia’s ability to circumvent current and future sanctions and encourage an end to the war.
According to a report, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a big fan of the Ukrainian President Zelenskyy. On St. Patrick’s Day, she awkwardly read and performed a poem penned by U2 frontman Bono criticizing Russia’s assault on Ukraine as part of Congress’ St. Patrick’s Day celebrations – something that appears to be an annual ritual.
From the poem;
“Ireland’s sorrow and pain
Is now the Ukraine
And Saint Patrick’s name now Zelenskyy.”
She read it dramatically. And after she was finished with the poem, she introduced Riverdance. Riverdance is a theatrical production based on traditional Irish music and dance. It began as an interval entertainment act at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, starring Irish dance champions Jean Butler and Michael Flatley.
Nancy Pelosi knows one thing well, and that’s political theater.
