Jill Biden makes secret visit to Ukraine
Ukraine: Jill Biden made an unannounced visit to western Ukraine on Sunday. She held a surprise Mother’s Day meeting with first lady Olena Zelenska as a symbol of US support for the nation shattered due to the Russian invasion.
Biden visited under the cloak of secrecy, turning out to be the latest high-profile American to reach Ukraine during its 10-week-old war with Russia.
“I wanted to visit on Mother’s Day,” the US first lady told Zelenska. “I thought it was crucial to show the Ukrainian people that this war has to stop and this war has been brutal and that the people of the United States stand with the people of Ukraine.”
Biden spent about two hours in Ukraine.
