Yes, Ukrainians are grateful

Has Ukraine expressed sufficient gratitude to the American people for all the support they have provided since Russia’s full-scale invasion in February 2022?

The question has lingered since the NATO summit in Lithuania in July, when a nettled White House official fumed at a public forum, “The American people do deserve a degree of gratitude.”

National security adviser Jake Sullivan was responding to Ukrainian criticism – including from President Volodymyr Zelenskyy – of NATO’s refusal to admit the Eastern European nation.
