Will Biden Visit Ukraine?

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has called on President Joe Biden to visit Ukraine amid Russia's invasion. Will he make the trip?

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said last week that the administration is "not currently planning a trip by the President of the United States to Ukraine." During a visit to Poland last month, Biden said that "they will not let me, understandably, I guess, cross the border and take a look at what's going on in Ukraine." The White House had said before the trip that a potential visit to Ukraine hadn't been explored. In an interview with CNN that aired Sunday, Zelesnkyy said "I think [Biden's] the leader of the United States and that's why he should come here to see," and predicted that Biden would eventually make the trip.

Some sources across the media spectrum framed a potential visit by Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris as unlikely. Coverage from left-rated sources sometimes highlighted Zelenskyy's prediction that Biden would eventually go to Ukraine. Some reports from right-rated sources painted Zelesnkyy's comments as a challenge to Biden.
