Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky admitted on Thursday that he was worried that Washington political rhetoric in the run up to next year’s election could undermine US support for his country.

Arriving at a European summit in Granada, Zelensky said Kyiv had been assured of US President Joe Biden’s backing but acknowledged that it was a “difficult election period for the United States”.

“Different voices. Some of the voices are very strange. About this also, we will speak about this,” he said, before the meeting of the European Political Community.
