US President Joe Biden is set to travel to Poland this week to discuss further efforts to support Kiev and punish Russia for its military offensive in Ukraine.
According to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Biden will meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw on Friday to discuss how the US and its allies are “responding to the humanitarian and human rights crisis that Russia’s unjustified and unprovoked war on Ukraine has created.”
The meeting will reportedly take place after Biden has traveled to Brussels, Belgium to meet with NATO allies and European Union officials to “discuss international efforts to support Ukraine and impose severe and unprecedented costs on Russia.”
While the Biden administration has provided military aid to Ukraine and imposed harsh sanctions on Russia, it has also sought to avoid direct conflict between the US and Russia.
