As we reported earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expects to receive an invitation from U.S. President Joe Biden to a meeting at the White House.
"I think I will definitely be invited by President Biden to the White House, and I will gladly accept that invitation. I believe that we have a lot to talk about and a lot to do. It seems to me that some changes in the world will take place during President Biden's term. Very positive changes. I would very much like us to be able to help him in this matter, and I would like President Biden to help Ukraine, which he knows very well," said Zelensky.
