United States Senator Lindsey Graham said that he has "never been more optimistic about the ability of the Ukrainians to go on the offense and take back their territory from the Russians" following his visit to Kyiv, APA reports citing Teletrader.
Graham met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko, and Ukrainian defense officials.
"On this trip, it is clear to me that the Russians have been bloodied and weakened. We must provide cluster munitions and additional long-range artillery to make the counteroffensive a success," Graham said. "While there are no magic weapons, the right weapons in the hands of determined Ukrainian people create magic on the battlefield."
