Jill Biden pays surprise visit to Ukraine, meets first lady
UZHHOROD, Ukraine (AP) — Jill Biden spent several hours in Ukraine, driving from the border with Slovakia to a town 10 minutes away to see first lady Olena Zelenska on Mother’s Day.
Biden is the latest high-profile American to enter Ukraine during the war, while Zelenska’s public appearance was her first since Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24.
The first ladies met at a school being used to temporarily house Ukrainian migrants.
Biden and Zelenska came together in a small classroom and greeted each other in front of reporters before they met in private.
Zelenska and her two children have been staying at an undisclosed location for their safety.
