Secretary Blinken delivers remarks at Kyiv Polytechnic Institute in Kyiv, Ukraine
(@ 1:25:25) Today, I'm here in Keev to speak about Ukraine's strategic success and to set out how with our support the Ukrainian people can and will achieve their vision for a future of free, prosperous democracy fully integrated into the Euro-Atlantic community and fully in control of its own destiny. We're meeting at a critical moment. Putin is ramping up yet another offensive against Ukraine and Kharkiv and across the east, sending wave after wave of Russian soldiers, Iranian drones, North Korean artillery, and tanks, missiles, and fighter jets built with machines and parts supplied by China. The coming weeks and months will demand a great deal of Ukrainians who have already sacrificed so much, but I have come to Ukraine with a message: You are not alone. The United States has been by your side since day one. We are with you today, and we will stay by your side until Ukraine's security, its sovereignty, its ability to choose its own path is guaranteed. And we're far from your only friend. Dozens of countries around the world are not just rooting for Ukraine's success, they're helping you achieve it.
World War or Global Peace Summit? You be the judge. Needs moar Oceania and Western Hemisphere or 'just' nuclear detonation?

Blinken and Kuleba had lunch at the Keev pizzaria Veterans Pizza. A video of Blinken with a local band playing Neil Young's "Rockin' in The Free World" appeared online. Some native bar fllies were not amused.

Meanwhile, Zelensk* will visit Spain to sign a bilateral security agreement. Zelensk* will visit Madrid Friday, May 17.

The European Union also admitted it agreed to "a general agreement" on security guarantees with Ukraine. But it will not be legally binding or contain a clause on sending troops to Ukraine.
