The Ukrainian President made a wartime visit to Washington in December 2022 and delivered an impassioned speech to a joint meeting of Congress. It was his first known trip outside his home country after Russia’s invasion in February that year.
In his speech to cheering lawmakers, Zelensky thanked Americans for helping finance the war effort and said the money was “not a charity” but an “investment” in global security and democracy.
Details of Zelensky’s visit next week have not yet been made public. This information was first given by Punchbol News.
The White House National Security Council declined to comment on Zelensky’s plans, including whether he would meet with Biden at the White House.
