US President Joe Biden arrived in Poland after a short visit to Kiev, in a show of solidarity with the region ahead of the first anniversary of the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine.
Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Piotr Warzyk told the Polish news agency, Monday, that Biden crossed the Ukrainian-Polish border, and arrived in Przemysl by train.
He was due to fly later to Warsaw from Rzeszow Airport on Air Force One.
Biden had come from Kiev, where he met Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, on a visit that witnessed strict security measures.
Biden took advantage of the visit to promise Kiev with Washington’s continued support and to send a signal expressing unity in the face of Russian aggression.
Biden is scheduled to spend the next two days in Poland, where he will meet Polish President Andrzej Duda and deliver a speech at the Royal Castle in Warsaw before the first anniversary of the full invasion of Moscow on February 24.
Biden intends to meet representatives of other Eastern European countries that are NATO members in Warsaw next Wednesday.
