Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has announced that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin will visit Kyiv Today.

“I don’t think this is a secret that people from the US are coming to us tomorrow, State Secretary Mr. Blinken and the Defense Secretary (Lloyd Austin) who are coming to us,” Zelensky said at a press conference.

Zelensky also said, “We will be expecting, when the security will allow, the President of the United States to come and to talk to us.”

Zelensky told CNN’s Jake Tapper last week that he would like President Joe Biden to visit Ukraine.

“I think he will,” Zelensky said, adding that it was Biden’s decision and would depend on the security situation.

Biden had formerly proposed that he would want to go to Ukraine. He was working with his team whether he should send a senior member of his administration to the country.
