President Biden spoke Tuesday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for more than 30 minutes, the White House said.
Details on the phone call are expected to be released later in the day.
On Twitter, Zelensky said he had just spoken to Biden: “The American leadership on anti-Russian sanctions and defense assistance to Ukraine was discussed. We must stop the aggressor as soon as possible. Thank you for your support!”
The White House said the pair discussed the U.S.’s “sustained help for Ukraine, including ongoing deliveries of security assistance, economic support and humanitarian aid.”
The two leaders “discussed how the United States, along with Allies and partners, is working to hold Russia accountable, including by imposing sanctions that are already having an impact on the Russian economy,” the White House said.
