He also said he had already invited the President and Vice President of the United States to the Crimean Platform summit.
"I am impressed that the American side is well versed in what is happening in our country, knows all the details, the situation in Donbas. I am grateful that we are supported and not only in words our sovereignty, our territorial integrity. Frankly speaking, many steps have been taken to stop the escalation that was recently along our borders, it could have occurred from temporarily occupied Donbas and our temporarily occupied Crimea peninsula," Zelensky said.
