The president’s office said they came to the White House as “partner to partner”
During the visit to the United States, the Ukrainian delegation was able to implement much more than planned. The corresponding statement was made by the head of the President’s office Nezalezhnaya Aleksey Arestovich.
According to the Ukrainian civil servant, Kiev “reached the maximum” during the working visit, and all the results exceeded expectations. For the first time in such a long time, Nezalezhnaya appeared, in Arestovich’s opinion, “not as a supplicant,” although in the eyes of many members of the public there was an impression that Zelensky and the administration appeared as a forced person, asking for the mercy of the owner in the lowest way.
“Not a client to a patron, as we often say, but in fact a partner came to a partner,” Arestovich commented.
The Ukrainian official also reiterated the thesis of Minsk’s “non-compliance”, pointing out that this issue was not raised during the talks between Zelensky and Biden. The representative of Kiev also pointed out that formally none of the parties announced their withdrawal from the agreements.
Zelensky, Arestovich continued, brought several scenarios to the United States to solve the problem. The President of Ukraine also proposed to create a new system of pressure on the Russian Federation in order to force it “to fulfill its international obligations.” Within the framework of this system, the participation of the White House is expected.
Arestovich added that one of the results of the Ukrainian-American talks was the decision to expand cooperation in the intelligence sphere between the two countries. Now Kiev will receive data in real time, thus having much more detailed information from colleagues from the CIA.
According to ex-President Petro Poroshenko, there are no results of the visit of the Zelensky delegation to the United States.
