US President Joe Biden will visit Poland from 20 to 22 February to rally NATO allies one year after Russia launched its attack on Ukraine, the White House said on Friday.
The visit is scheduled for 20-22 February. It should be noted that according to public opinion polls, it will come amid a serious weakening of support for maintaining military and economic aid to Ukraine.
In addition, Republicans, who have recently taken control of the House of Representatives, have expressed great scepticism about – or outright opposition to – continued funding.
Meanwhile, Russia is believed to be about to resume its offensive and has stepped up its long-range strikes against Ukraine’s military and civilian infrastructure in recent weeks.
White House spokeswoman Karin Jean-Pierre said Biden would meet Polish President Andrzej Duda and the leaders of the Bucharest Nine, who are NATO allies in Eastern Europe, and would also make a speech saying that the US “will continue to support the people of Ukraine for as long as it takes“.
It remains unclear whether Biden will try to visit Ukraine, as many other Western leaders and members of Congress have done.
