'Confident' Zelensky wants no involvement in U.S. politics -Senator Murphy

A group of three U.S. Senators visited Kiev on Friday (February 14) to convey a message of continued bipartisan support for Ukraine after it got entangled last year in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.

The United States has been the most powerful backer of Ukraine in its standoff with Russia over Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea and support for separatist fighters in a simmering conflict in the eastern Donbass region.

But their relationship was tested after Trump froze nearly $400 million in security aid and pressed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate one of the Republican president's Democratic rivals, former vice president Joe Biden.
