Who did Zelensky meet with

The President arrived in Davos on Tuesday and has already met with many representatives of companies and countries. Zelensky spoke with Jamie Dimon from JPMorgan, Steve Schwarzman from Blackstone and Bridgewater founder Ray Dalio.

As the publication notes, “Zelensky’s mission is to replenish the state treasury and return attention to the conflict at the doors of Europe.”

Other leaders present at the meeting included Philipp Hildebrand of BlackRock, David Rubenstein and Lakshmi Mittal, head of Arcelormittal, one of the largest international investors in Ukraine.

What was discussed

Zelensky, according to Bloomberg, discussed support issues with the financial elite amid the delay in assistance from the US and the EU.

Earlier on Tuesday, Zelensky held a meeting with officials, including the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, chief Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan and U.S. Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware, a close ally of President Joe Biden.

“The meeting with potential investors at the Alpine meeting comes as global support for Ukraine's war falters and a months-long counteroffensive Kiev’s fight against Russian troops is not achieving its goals,” the report says.

Ukraine’s financial needs are urgent. Last month, the Ukrainian government urgently met with its main international donors as Kiev faced “extremely high uncertainty” about its budget.
