President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine is getting ready to travel to Washington and have a meeting with President Joe Biden at the White House on Wednesday.

This is his first known travel outside the Ukraine since Russia’s invasion started in February.

AP News received this information from three trustworthy sources.

A person with knowledge of the situation, two congressional sources, and the visit’s schedule were all verified. Due to the highly sensitive nature of the trip, they agreed to speak on the condition of anonymity. Despite being anticipated, they claimed Zelenskyy’s visit might yet be canceled at the last minute for security reasons.

A speech to Congress on Capitol Hill and a meeting with President Joe Biden are scheduled for the visit to Washington.

It happens as Congress prepare to vote on a year-end budget plan that contains roughly $45 billion in emergency aid for Ukraine and as the United States gets ready to deliver Patriot surface-to-air missiles to the nation to aid in thwarting Russia’s invasion.

In comparison to Biden’s emergency request for $37 billion, the most recent round of U.S. funds would be the largest amount of aid the country has ever given to Ukraine. This would guarantee that money would continue to flow to the war effort for months to come.

In a statement seen by Mandy News, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi urged legislators to attend the session on Wednesday evening.

Zelenskyy has virtually daily delivered video addresses to numerous parliaments and international organizations, and he has and sent his wife to overseas countries to solicit support.

The trip comes a day after he conducted a risky and perilous trek to Bakhmut, a city located in the disputed Donetsk area of Ukraine, which he described as the hotspot on the 1,300-kilometer front line.

Zelenskyy was given a Ukrainian flag during the Bakhmut visit, and in a now-viral video provided by his office, he made reference to giving it to American politicians.

The football governing body turned down Zelenskyy’s request to address the crowd prior to the recently ended 2022 World Cup in Qatar match between France and Argentina.
