According to Reuters sources, the issue has not yet been finalized; the delegation may be headed by Antony Blinken or Lloyd Austin.

The Joe Biden administration is planning a visit by a senior White House official to Kyiv as a sign of solidarity with Ukraine, a source familiar with the situation said.

According to the source, the most likely possibility is that Secretary of State Antony Blinken or Defense Minister Austin Lloyd will go to the Ukrainian capital.

According to the source, President Joe Biden is unlikely to visit Ukraine himself.

According to the source, the final decision on the visit has not yet been made.

Other Western leaders, including British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, have recently visited Ukraine as a sign of support for the country that has fallen victim to Russian aggression.

Meanwhile, Western governments are stepping up military assistance to strengthen Ukraine’s defense against the expected large-scale offensive by Russian forces in the east and south of the country.
