Ukraine: Nancy Pelosi and President Zelenskyy shake Hands during their meeting in Kyiv
The USA Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy shake Hands during their meeting in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Pelosi, second in line to the presidency after the vice president, is the highest-ranking American leader to visit Ukraine since the start of the war, and her visit marks a major show of continuing support for the country's struggle against Russia.
“We believe that we are visiting you to say thank you for your fight for freedom,” Pelosi told Zelenskyy.
Meanwhile, Ukraine has accused Russian forces of looting priceless artifacts from a museum in the southern city of Melitopol as fighting and missile strikes continued in Ukraine’s south and east.
The New York Times reported that the director of the Melitopol Museum of Local History, Leila Ibrahimova, said museum workers had hidden priceless treasure in boxes in a cellar. After Russian troops abducted and interrogated her for several hours in March, Ibrahimova left Melitopol for Kyiv-controlled territory. Melitopol has been occupied by Russian forces since early March.
