President Joe Biden and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymir Zelensky, discussed on Friday in a telephone call of about 40 minutes issues related to military aid and sanctions.

The White House reported the call between the two leaders, which lasted about 40 minutes and took place between 11.52 local time (16.52 GMT) and 12.32 (17.32 GMT).

Although the White House did not disclose the content of the conversation, Zelensky said on Twitter that he had spoken with Biden about “strengthening sanctions,” “concrete defense assistance” and “an anti-war coalition.”

“Grateful to the United States for strong support for Ukraine,” Zelensky added.

After months of tensions, Russia this week launched a military operation in Ukraine that began with shelling in several urban centers and continued with troop deployments, so that this Friday Russian military units are tightening their grip on the country’s capital, Kyiv.

In reaction to the Russian attack, Biden hit Russia with sanctions on its banks and elite, as well as restrictions on high-tech exports to Russia, among other measures.

The fighting already cost the lives of 137 Ukrainians and 316 have been wounded, according to the Ukrainian government, and thousands of people have had to flee to western Ukraine or to the neighboring countries of Moldova, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.
