It was a bold visit that is considered unusual even for an American president. During the presence of President Biden in Poland, there were rumors in the press that he might visit Ukraine, but despite this, his departure to Ukraine surprised everyone.
All passengers’ mobile phones will be taken from them and will not be returned until they reach Ukraine. US President Joe Biden’s surprise visit to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, has been described by White House officials as “unprecedented in modern times” in a region where war continues and attacks continue.
By the way, it was widely reported that Joe Biden might travel to Ukraine on Monday, but Air Force One, the presidential plane, took off on Sunday. Only two journalists were allowed to travel with the President, who was sworn to secrecy and their mobile phones were also confiscated.
A small team was intentionally kept on the plane, which included the president’s close advisers, a medical team, and security officials. The two journalists who were on the plane were not allowed to cover the visit until President Biden arrived.
According to US National Security Adviser Jack Sullivan, Russia was informed about the visit a few hours before the departure of President Biden.
President Biden took a 10-hour train ride to the Ukrainian capital.
Joe Biden’s visit is also an attempt to answer opposition Republicans in the US who are questioning how long the US can continue to support Ukraine.
US President Joe Biden, along with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, entered the center of the capital Kyiv amid air raid sirens.
