President Biden is in Kyiv, total surprise

Joe Biden came to Kyiv on an unannounced visit. The US President met with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.

Dorzeczy_pl: Traffic was shut down in part of the Ukrainian capital, especially on the main streets between the center and the US embassy. The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry abruptly canceled his visit to Brussels.

Media speculation suggested that a delegation headed by a "high-ranking Western official" was heading to Kyiv. Finally, unofficial reports that it was about the president of the United States were confirmed.

Niezalezna_pl: "As the world prepares for the anniversary of Russia's brutal invasion of Ukraine, I am in Kiev today to meet President Zelensky and reaffirm our unwavering and unwavering support for Ukraine's democracy, sovereignty, and territorial integrity," - President Biden wrote in a statement.

Wpolityce_pl: “We must and can do everything to make 2023 a year of victory,” said the Ukrainian president at a joint press conference with US President Joe Biden in Kyiv. 

Niezalezna_pl: "I look forward to visiting Poland and meeting with President Andrzej Duda and the leaders of our Eastern Flank allies," Biden said. This week, he said, additional sanctions will be announced against "elites and enterprises" that support the Russian war machine.

Dorzeczy_pl: According to The New York Times, Biden made a clandestine trip to the Ukrainian capital on Monday, arriving there after a 10-hour train journey from the Polish border.

American journalists emphasize that the visit of the American president to Kyiv was held secretly for security reasons. Biden left Washington without warning after he and his wife had dinner at a restaurant Saturday night, the New York Times reported.

Apparently, the Kremlin is very upset about this.
