US President Joe Biden mentioned Monday he’ll in all probability not go to Ukraine throughout a visit to Europe that begins this week.
Biden first mentioned “that relies upon” when requested if he deliberate to go to Ukraine.
However then he mentioned “on this journey, unlikely,” as he spoke to reporters who pressed him about such a chance as he strolled on the seaside throughout a protracted vacation weekend.
Biden is amongst a shrinking variety of main Western leaders who haven’t but visited Ukraine to indicate help in opposition to the Russian invasion.
Final week, French President Emmanuel Macron joined the prime ministers of Germany and Italy in visiting Ukraine, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been there twice.
Biden did go so far as Poland, which borders Ukraine to the west, in late March.
Biden is heading to Germany on Saturday for a Group of Seven Summit, then on to Madrid for a gathering of NATO leaders.
He advised reporters a go to to Ukraine would depend upon “numerous issues, whether or not or not it causes extra difficulties for Ukrainians, whether or not it distracts from what is going on on.”
Then he mentioned such a visit is unlikely throughout this tour of Europe.
Biden mentioned he’s shut contact with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, talking to him “virtually 4 instances per week.”
