Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asked this Sunday (17) that the representative of the United States, Joe Biden, visit Ukraine and see in person the war unleashed by the Russian invasion.

“Of course it’s his decision, and it depends on security, but I think the US leader should come here to observe,” Zelensky said, in an interview with CNN. The Ukrainian president said he was convinced that “he will do it”.

After the withdrawal of Russian troops from the outskirts of Kiev, Biden revealed that he was studying the possibility of sending a high-ranking member of his government to Ukraine. Some media speculate that it could be Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, or of Defense, Lloyd Austin.

On the 8th, the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, met in Kiev with Zelensky, a gesture that the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, repeated the next day. Biden was at the end of March in Poland, Ukraine’s neighboring country and which received the most refugees due to the war, but on that occasion he ruled out the possibility of stepping on Ukrainian territory.
