Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy discussed tougher sanctions, defense aid and an anti-war coalition with US President Joe Biden, he wrote on Twitter on Friday.

“Grateful to the United States for the strong support for Ukraine!” Zelenskiy wrote.

Earlier today, Zelenskiyy said his country was “left alone” to fight Russia.

“I asked 27 European leaders if Ukraine would be in NATO. Everyone is afraid, no one answers. But we are not afraid, we are not afraid of anything. We have no afraid to defend our country, we are not afraid of Russia. We are not afraid to talk to Russia. We have been left alone to defend our nation. Who is ready to fight with us? I don’t see nobody,” Zelenskyy said in a video message.

Russia launched its land, air and sea invasion on Thursday following a declaration of war by President Vladimir Putin. About 100,000 people fled as explosions and gunfire rocked major cities. Dozens were reportedly killed.
