Biden’s speech will take from Ukraine. Biden’s speech will take place less than 500 miles from Ukraine. The last time he visited the region, he made a surprise visit to the Polish-Ukrainian border, where he met with NATO troops and Ukrainian refugees. Biden’s proximity to Kyiv on the eve of the war’s milestone led to speculation of a possible visit to the country, which several European leaders have undertaken in the past year. The White House has not indicated whether this might happen.
48%: Less than half of Americans support sending military aid to Ukraine. The figure has declined from 60% last spring, after right-wing politicians in the US used the spending as a political tool to attack president Biden
Lukashenko invites Biden and Putin to a summit
Belarusian president Aleksandr Lukashenko invited Biden to extend his trip to Europe with a visit to Minsk and a joint meeting with Putin, even offering to send a plane to Poland to pick him up. A staunch ally of the Kremlin, the man often dubbed Europe’s last dictator has strongly supported Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and claimed to stand ready to join Russia’s war in Ukraine if attacked.
“Why is Biden going to Poland? Why Poland? We’re cool with that. But if he is willing we are ready to host him in Minsk,” Lukashenko said in a press conference this week, adding, “Poland is nearby, I will send a plane if anything, a Boeing for him, and we will host him.” The reference to the US manufacturer might have been a nod to last year’s sanctions on the Belarusian state airline using American-made airplanes.
