U.S. President Joe Biden will travel to Poland on 25 March 2022 to discuss the international response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that has sparked a humanitarian and human rights crisis. Biden will travel to Warsaw where he will hold a bilateral meeting with President Andrzej Duda, the White House said.
Biden’s Poland trip will come a day after he meets in Brussels with NATO Allies, G7 Leaders and European Union Leaders to discuss international efforts to support Ukraine after Russia’s invasion. The White House also said Biden will host a call Monday at 11 a.m. EST with President Emmanuel Macron of France, Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany, Prime Minister Mario Draghi of Italy, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the United Kingdom to discuss their coordinated responses to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Over 2 million refugees have entered Poland from Ukraine since the start of the Russian invasion on 24 Feb 2022. The U.N. said some of the 2 million people entering Poland from Ukraine have moved on to other countries in the EU but the majority are believed to be still in Poland.
