As noted, a plane is waiting for him at the local airport, which will take Biden to Warsaw. His program for the next two days includes a meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda and talks with the heads of the nine Bucharest countries (Bulgaria, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Estonia).
Early Monday, Biden traveled to kyiv, where he arrived by train from Poland. The visit was a great surprise for many, it was not announced and was prepared in secret. Biden even left Washington without notice. He was accompanied on his trip to Ukraine by national security adviser Jake Sullivan, White House deputy chief of staff Jen O’Malley Dillon and personal assistant Annie Tomasini, as well as two journalists.
“The group that accompanied the president on the trip was extremely small, in fact reduced to a few of his closest advisers, a limited number of medical personnel, a photographer and a security service,” Sullivan said after the visit.
