White House national-security adviser John Bolton has arrived in Kyiv — the first visit to Ukraine by a top U.S. official since the election of President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in April.
Speaking to reporters in the Ukrainian capital on August 27, Bolton said he had traveled there to hear the priorities of the new government, adding that it was in the United States’ interest to see a successful Ukraine, according to Reuters.
He also told reporters that U.S. President Donald Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart could meet soon in Poland, but he did not give a date.
“Ambassador Bolton is here to underscore U.S. support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, and Euro-Atlantic path. He looks forward to productive meetings with Ukrainian officials,” the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv said on Twitter on August 27.
