Zelensky troubled by U.S. Republican lawmakers' Ukraine aid remarks

MOSCOW. Nov 11 (Interfax) - Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has said that he is concerned about recent "mixed messages" from Republican lawmakers on aid for Kiev.

Zelensky said that his top priority is to preserve bipartisan support from the United States after the midterm elections, Ukrainian media said, citing the Ukrainian president's interview with CNN.

Support from the U.S. "sends a very significant, powerful signal," he said.

"We are grateful for bipartisan support. We would really like to have this bipartisan support remain after the elections," Zelensky said.

"There have been these mixed messages that were in the U.S. mass media, particularly from the Republican side [...] that we need to be more careful about supporting Ukraine - and maybe that at a certain point, the support could be reduced. For us this is a very concerning signal," the president said.
