By Stermy 3 Min Read

Volodymyr Zelensky, president of the Ukraine, asked the US on Tuesday, November 8th to maintain unity as concerns loom about US support for his nation following the midterm elections to determine control of the US Congress.

Midterm elections in the United States are the general elections that are held near the midpoint of a president’s four-year term of office, on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. It is being held this year on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 (Election Day).

During this midterm election year, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate will be contested. Thirty-nine state and territorial gubernatorial elections, as well as numerous other state and local elections, will be contested. The results will determine the 118th United States Congress.

Volodymyr Zelensky’s message to the people of the US was made available on Tuesday in a recorded video where he calls for peace.

“I call on you to maintain unwavering unity, as it is now, until that very day when we all hear those important words we have been dreaming of … Until we hear that peace has finally been restored. Democracies must not stop on their way to the victory,” he said in a recorded address, receiving the US Liberty Medal.

US President Joe Biden has urged people to support Democrats in the House of Representatives and the Senate. Joe Biden has been a crucial ally to Ukraine in providing weaponry and financial support to resist Moscow’s invasion.

If both defect, Biden would be reduced to the status of a lame duck, raising doubts about the future of the US’s steadfast support for Kiev.

As in any democratic society, Ukrainians have different views on life and politics. As the case was in previous years, we felt divided arguing whether we would ever be able to stand together.

“But when Russia decided to destroy our freedom and wipe Ukraine off the face of the earth, we immediately got united and we keep this unity.” Zelensky said.

The US Congress committed $40 billion for Ukraine in May with support across party lines and Ukraine’s defence minister on Monday this week thanked the US after Kyiv took receipt of more air defence systems.
