Ukrainian Zelensky to visit Biden at the White House in August

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will meet with President Joe Biden next month in Washington, the White House said on Wednesday.

News of Zelensky’s visit to the White House, scheduled for August 30, comes at a delicate moment in the Washington-Kiev alliance, as the United States prepares to strike a deal with Germany on the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Ukraine has expressed concerns over the project, which would supply cheap natural gas from Russia to Germany via a 764-mile-long pipeline under the Baltic Sea, potentially reducing Ukraine’s role in regional trade Energy.
