US President Joe Biden has arrived in Kyiv, his first visit to Ukraine since Russia invaded almost a year ago.
The surprise visit came as he travelled to neighbouring Poland to meet President Andrzej Duda.
There had been speculation earlier today that an important guest was arriving in the Ukrainian capital, which Ukrainian politician Lesia Vasylenko has confirmed is Biden.
During the week end, the NATO activities at the Ukraine’s borders have increased.
