"These people are our supporters in Washington. Rukh Novykh Syl leaders began the last day of the expiring year with a lunch with friends of Ukraine - a delegation of senators and the United States ambassador to Ukraine.

"As my old friend Senator McCain joked speaking with Yulia Marushevska, our friendship is older than she is. I introduced Ukrainian politicians of the new generation to my American friends. Ukraine and the [Odesa] region require U.S. support more than ever.

"The delegation left for Mariupol after lunch to attend a presentation of the U.S.-manufactured combat defense system which delivery to Ukraine I lobbied in the U.S. Congress along with others last year," Saakashvili said.
