The Italian politician reacted to Zelensky's post on social networks, in which he, in particular, congratulated the party on its victory in the elections, and also expressed hope for "fruitful cooperation with the new government of Italy."

“You can count on our faithful support for the cause of freedom of the Ukrainian people,” RIA Novosti quoted Meloni as saying in response to the post of Ukrainian president.

Earlier it was reported that the center-right coalition of the Brothers of Italy, the League and Fort Italia parties gained 44.53% in the elections to the upper house of parliament after processing more than 90% of the ballots.

Vice President of the European Parliament Katarina Barli said that the victory of the center-right coalition in the elections in Italy is worrying.
