The meeting between the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and the leader of the USA Joe Biden will take place this summer, most likely in August. This was announced by interim Chargé d'Affaires at the Embassy of the United States, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George P. Kent in a comment to Radio Svoboda.
"When President Biden and President Zelensky talked, President Biden suggested the meeting to be in July or later in the summer. So, it might be a little later. Not in July, but I think in August," he said.
Kent stated there were no obstacles to the meeting, and "the only issue now is to find time in President Biden's schedule."
"As I said, the meeting will be in the summer. But not now," he pointed.
However, later the media reported that Washington was currently offering Kyiv a visit in late August, much to the displeasure of the Ukrainian side.
At the same time, Ukraine's spokesman Nykyforov stated that the meeting could take place in early August.
