During their meeting, Biden commended "the Ukrainian government’s commitment to move forward to stabilize Ukraine and its economy," according to the White House.

As Ukraine grapples with Russia's military incursion into its Crimea region, Biden "reiterated that the United States stands firmly behind Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in ensuring Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity."
