American aid to Ukraine will send a message that there will not be a "second Afghanistan", Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said today in an interview for the program "Meet the Press" on the American television channel NBC.

- The process of providing this aid is necessary to reach its final point, and after the House of Representatives of the US Congress to be approved by the Senate - added Zelenski.

According to him, approving the aid will send a strong message to the Kremlin that the US is behind Ukraine and thus Kiev has a chance to win.

Asked about the prospect of a Russian offensive, the Ukrainian president said his country was preparing for it. He stressed that the armed forces of Ukraine need long-range weapons and air defense systems so as not to lose people at the front.

The lower house of the US Congress last night approved the law for military aid to Ukraine, worth 61 billion dollars. The law remains to be approved by the Senate, and for President Joe Biden to sign it, after which it will come into force.
