USA: President Biden welcomes Zelensky to White House

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was greeted by US President Joe Biden at the White House after making a surprise visit to Washington, DC on Wednesday.

Zelensky was seen wearing his familiar olive-green attire alongside the US President and First Lady Jill Biden on the South Lawn, before stepping inside.

The Ukrainian President is expected to engage in extended talks with Biden during his visit to the Oval Office in a bid to secure more financial aid and support for his country from one of its closest allies.

Zelensky is also expected to address members of Congress later in the day.

President Zelensky’s first visit to the US since the ongoing conflict with Russia began last February was shrouded in secrecy amid security concerns.

The Ukrainian head of state travelled to Poland by train before boarding an American military aircraft bound for Joint Base Andrews, on the outskirts of Washington, DC.
