Bush said that President Zelenskyy “assured me” that his country will not waver in its fight against Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s “barbarism and thuggery.”

He also claimed that Americans are inspired by Ukraine’s fortitude and resilience. “We will continue to stand with Ukrainians as they stand up for their freedom,” he said.

Zelensky said it was “a great honor” to meet Bush.

During the meeting he expressed gratitude to America for its support for Ukriane and recalled the “sympathy Ukrainians felt” towards US citizens in the aftermath of the deadly 9/11 attacks in 2001 when Bush was president.

The two appeared to get on famously and Zelensky said he has now invited Bush to visit Ukraine.
