Biden Plans to Visit Poland for One-year Anniversary of Ukraine War

WASHINGTON — President Biden will visit Poland later this month for the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and demonstrate the durability of the U.S. commitment to stand up to Vladimir V. Putin’s aggression.

Mr. Biden will make a three-day visit starting on Feb. 20, White House officials said on Friday, and is set to meet with President Andrzej Duda of Poland and leaders of other NATO allies.

“President Biden will deliver remarks ahead of the one-year anniversary of Russia’s brutal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, addressing how the United States has rallied the world to support the people of Ukraine as they defend their freedom and democracy, and how we will continue to stand with the people of Ukraine for as long as it takes,” said Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary.

White House officials declined to say whether Mr. Biden planned to make a visit to Ukraine while he was in the area as a way of underscoring American support for President Volodymyr Zelensky.
