Antony Blinken and Lloyd Austin will meet with the President of Ukraine on Sunday.
The U.S. Foreign Minister Antony Blinken will visit Kyiv on Sunday, two months after the start of the Russian invasion, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Saturday.
“American officials will come to our house tomorrow: I will meet with the Minister of Defense (Lloyd Austin) and Antony Blinken,” Zelenskiy said at a press conference held in Kyiv.
This will be the first official visit of representatives of the U.S. government to Ukraine since February 24.
Zelenskiy also expressed hope that his American counterpart Joe Biden would be able to “come to support the Ukrainian people” in Kyiv when the security situation allows.
He explained that the discussion on Sunday will focus on the supply of American weapons to Ukraine.
“Last week, signals, messages, steps, deadlines, figures — I’m talking about weapons from the United States — everything improved,” he said, addressing reporters, and adding that he was “grateful” to the American administration, even if he wanted the Russian army to face “even heavier and more powerful weapons.”
