McConnell led a surprise trip to Ukraine with the GOP Senate delegation last week, 和...见面 Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
He noted the purpose of their trip to the Ukrainian capital.
“My trip essentially was an all Republican group who went to reassure the Europeans, the Ukrainians and others that we were completely together on this policy of helping the Ukrainians beat the Russians and that we were going to send them a package that gives them the kind of military equipment they need to recapture their country.”
