Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky congratulated French President Emmanuel Macron on his reelection Sunday, calling him a “true friend of Ukraine.”

“I wish him new success for the good of the people. I appreciate his support and I am convinced that we are moving forward together towards new common victories. Towards a strong and united Europe!” Zelensky said in a tweet.

Macron won France’s presidential election, fending off a historic challenge from far-right candidate Marine Le Pen during Sunday’s runoff vote. Macron took 58.55% of the vote, making him the first French president to be reelected in 20 years.
