While her husband continues to refrain from traveling to the war country, his first lady paid a surprise visit to the country. US President Joe Biden’s wife met Olena Zelenska, first lady of Ukraine, at a school used as a shelter for internally displaced persons in the city of Uzhgorod.
It was important to her to travel to Ukraine on Mother’s Day, Biden told journalists. “I felt it was important to show the Ukrainians that this war must stop, that this war is brutal, and that the United States stands with the Ukrainian people.”
US President Joe Biden’s wife is currently on a multi-day visit to Eastern Europe. On Friday she visited US soldiers in Romania and on Saturday she met Ukrainian refugees in the country. On Sunday, in addition to Ukraine, she visited Slovakia, reports the agency “AP”.
There were also surprising guests in the Kiev subway: the remaining citizens of the city have been staying here for weeks, fearing Russian air raids. Now the Irish band U2 caused a small sensation. Rock star and U2 frontman Bono gave a surprise concert.
