During the meeting, the prime minister spoke about the progress of reforms in Ukraine, thanked the American side for its political and economic support of Kyiv, called for the extension of sanctions against Russia, and discussed prospects for deepened cooperation between Ukraine and the U.S.

Hroisman stressed that the current government is determined to carry out reforms in Ukraine and fight corruption.

"We've gone through quite a difficult stage of political crisis, which, thank God, is over. The coalition has been restarted, and a new government has been formed. It is crucial for our team to proceed with reforms, cooperate with the International Monetary Fund, as well as to ensure the organization of work with the European Union," the prime minister stated.
