Italian PM: Support for Ukraine is safeguard for international law

Italy supports Ukraine, defending international law, Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said during a meeting with the US President Joe Biden in Washington, D.C.

“Those who live in peace should be the first supporters of the Ukrainian cause,” Meloni said.

Western countries have shown with their response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that they can rely on each other, the Italian premier added. At the same time, Biden thanked Rome for supporting Kyiv.

“Italy and the United States are also standing strong with Ukraine, and I compliment you on your very strong support in defending against Russian atrocities. And I thank the Italian people. I want to thank them for supporting you and supporting Ukraine. It makes a big difference,” the US President said. 

On July 26, the Senate of the Italian Republic recognized the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as a genocide of the Ukrainian people.
