Former US State Department spokesman Ned Price assured that both the American people and members of Congress support efforts to help Ukraine defend itself from Russian aggression

Price said this on the sidelines of the International Mayors' Summit, reports Espreso correspondent Kateryna Halko.  

"I know that this (assistance to Ukraine - ed.) has the overwhelming support of the American people, the overwhelming support of members of Congress. The American people, the US Congress, certainly the current administration understands the need and continues to support Ukraine. This is an important principle in the context of Ukraine, but it is an important principle in the world. And when the rules of the world, when the very principles of national sovereignty are violated somewhere, as in the case of Ukraine, then they can potentially be violated anywhere," he said. 

Price stressed that the Americans are acutely aware of the need to support Ukraine not only with words but also with resources. 

"That's why we have been having a very active conversation with the Congress for many months now, and this conversation is ongoing. But what we hear from the Congress day in and day out, from Democrats and Republicans, is that they support continued solidarity with Ukraine, they want us to be able to demonstrate that, and we are confident that we will be able to continue to do so," the former State Department spokesman said. 

According to him, work is also underway in many formats to ensure that Russia is held accountable for its crimes. The United States is actively cooperating with other countries and Ukrainian partners to help collect evidence, analyze it, preserve it, and make it available to various international bodies, including the International Criminal Court and the International Court of Justice. 

"Our Ukrainian partners have a very active and competent judicial system in which they have demonstrated a very good ability to prosecute war crimes as they have suffered at the hands of Russian forces, as well as their international bodies," he added.

  • Earlier, about four dozen global celebrities sent an open letter to the US Congress, urging it not to let Ukraine lose in its defense against Russian aggression.
