Kyiv. US President Joe Biden made an unannounced visit to Ukraine on Monday. Biden’s visit to meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky a few days before the completion of one year of Russia’s attack on Ukraine is being seen as a step to show solidarity. President Joe Biden’s surprise visit to wartime Kiev on Monday morning began at midnight in a military airport hangar outside Washington. Escaping from the eyes of the world’s media, political people and American voters at 4:00 am on Sunday morning, Joe Biden left for Ukraine by boarding an Air Force aircraft Boeing 757.

This aircraft is mostly used by the US President on short foreign trips. This plane was parked on Sunday morning far away from the place from where Biden usually departs. The window of the plane was covered. Joe Biden, a handful of security personnel, a small medical team, close advisers, and two journalists sworn to secrecy left for Ukraine by way of a war zone. Let us tell you that US President Joe Bain travels a lot internationally. Members of the press follow Biden wherever he goes, be it to church or to international summits.

Every word he utters in public is recorded, translated and published. This 10-hour trip to Ukraine, however, was unlike any trip taken by a modern American president. Joe Biden last visited the Ukrainian capital when he was vice president under Barack Obama.

This is the US President’s first visit since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine a year ago. According to the New York Times report, Joe Biden reached Ukraine by train in a very secretive manner on the border of Poland. Biden’s visit to Ukraine’s capital Kiev suddenly from Poland was kept very secret due to security reasons.

Earlier, Biden had gone to meet the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda. Expressing surprise at Joe Biden’s visit, the New York Times wrote, ‘According to the President’s schedule released by the White House on Sunday night, the President was to be in Washington on Monday and he was to leave for Warsaw in the evening. While by that time he had completed half of his journey.
