The United States has praised Greece over its response to Ukrainian crisis, with the US Department of State on Tuesday commending the country for its fast and effective reflexes

A spokesperson said the United States congratulate the Greek government on its significant and timely humanitarian and military assistance to the government of Ukraine.

"This significant aid, delivered within hours of President Zelensky's request, demonstrates once again Greece's solidarity with Ukraine," it was added.

The US State Department representative also highlighted Greece's role as the US's strategic ally, one that actively promotes security, stability and democracy, not only in Europe, but in various regions of importance to the United States.
