Even though Ms. Zelenska doesn’t have an official portfolio in the Ukrainian government, her visit signals the heightened push by Kyiv to seek more military aid and political backing as Russia’s war in Ukraine nears the five-month mark.

Her husband, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, addressed Congress virtually in March, pressing for more military gear.

His wife is in Washington as United States is sending nearly $40 billion in aid appropriated by Congress that is expected to be fully delivered by the end of September.
