The White House said the pair discussed the U.S.’s “sustained help for Ukraine, including ongoing deliveries of security assistance, economic support and humanitarian aid.”

The two leaders “discussed how the United States, along with Allies and partners, is working to hold Russia accountable, including by imposing sanctions that are already having an impact on the Russian economy,” the White House said.
