Ukrainian President Zelensky, who is at war with Russia, came to the US to meet with US President Biden.

Ukrainian leader Zelensky made his first foreign visit to the United States since the start of the war. While Zelensky was meeting with President Biden at the White House, it was officially announced that the Patriots would be handed over to Ukraine.

As the war between Russia and Ukraine continues, an unexpected event took place yesterday and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky went on an official visit to the US capital, DC. Although the visit was not announced in advance, details of Zelenskiy’s trip were not released due to security concerns. However, the Ukrainian leader was spotted at a railway station in Poland.

Zelensky met with US President Joe Biden at the White House in Washington during his first foreign visit since the start of the Russian invasion in February. Zelensky, who was greeted on the red carpet by President Biden and his wife Jill Biden at the entrance to the White House, headed to the Oval Office after a handshake. In the open part of the meeting, Biden pledged to “continue to strengthen Ukraine’s ability to defend itself” and stressed the need for a “just peace” in Ukraine.

Biden said Putin “used the winter as a weapon” and said, “I’m honored to be with you in defense of the brutal and brutal war that Putin is waging. It’s hard to believe, but 300 days have passed since the war. “Putin, without any reason, continues to ruthlessly attack the right of Ukrainians to exist as a nation and against the innocent Ukrainian people,” he said. Biden also assured that the United States, along with European allies, would continue to support Ukraine. Zelenskiy said: “It is a great honor for me to be here” and expressed “heartfelt gratitude” for the military assistance. In addition, Zelensky presented Biden with a military medal sent by a captain who fought in the Donetsk region.

At the time of Zelensky’s arrival in the US, the US State Department announced that Ukraine would be given $1.85 billion worth of military assistance, including Patriot air defense systems. As part of the aid package, Ukraine will receive $1 billion worth of military equipment, including Patriot air defense systems, from US Department of Defense stockpiles, as well as $850 million in funding from the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. Total US military assistance to Ukraine with the latest aid package will reach $21.9 billion.

What will the Patriot do?

Before the visit, the US announced that it would provide Ukraine with the Patriot air defense system, and began discussing the impact of these weapons on the battlefield. The US administration considers Patriot a very important and effective means of protecting Ukrainian airspace from Russian attacks.
