The American Jewish Committee concluded a solidarity mission to Ukraine on Thursday, expressing its support for the former Soviet republic in its conflict with Russia.

"First and foremost, we visited Kiev to express our ongoing solidarity with, and support for, the Ukrainian quest to chart its own destiny," AJC Executive Director David Harris said in a statement.

"We applaud the current government's determination in the face of overwhelming adversity. With so much at stake for Ukraine and regional and global security, it is critical that Western governments respond with appropriate support for the country. This is nothing less than a defining era."

The delegation met with senior officials -including security officials and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk- as well as Jewish leaders, the American organization said in a statement.

Among the topics discussed were "financial, military, and other forms of international support needed by Ukraine" and the well-being of Ukrainian Jewry, the AJC stated.
