US secretary of state Blinken tells President Zelenskiy war is at ‘pivotal moment’The US secretary of state, Anthony Blinken, told Volodymyr Zelenskiy the war with Russia was in a “pivotal moment” as Ukraine’s military continues its counteroffensive in the south of the country.

Blinken made a surprise visit to Ukraine’s capital Kyiv on Thursday after the US unveiled nearly $2.7bn (£2.4bn) in new military support to Ukraine and other European countries threatened by Russia.

AP reports that Blinken told Zelenskiy:

We know this is a pivotal moment, more than six months into Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, as your counteroffensive is now under way and proving effective.

Zelenskiy replied:

We are grateful for the signal, for this enormous support that you’re providing on a day-to-day basis.
