 Joe Biden to travel to Ukraine

Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Kiev later this month to meet with Ukrainian government leaders, the White House announced Saturday.

His April 22 trip is just weeks ahead of Ukraine’s first presidential election since deposed president Viktor Yanukovych was forced from the country. The White House says Biden’s meetings with officials and civil society groups will cover constitutional reform, anti-corruption efforts and fair elections on May 25.

“The vice president will underscore the United States’ strong support for a united, democratic Ukraine that makes its own choices about its future path,” the White House statement said.



The announcement comes as Russia is accused of stoking unrest in eastern Ukraine and moving troops toward the border following its February annexation of Crimea. The White House announcement says pro-Russian separatists, apparently backed by Moscow, “continue an orchestrated campaign of incitement and sabotage to destabilize the Ukrainian state.”

Is Biden aware Ukraine isn't part of the United States and it isn't hosting a democratic fundraiser?
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

Well, that should be a laugh a minute.   :thud:

That's going to be an expensive fiasco. I don't even want to think about how many SS and military people it will take to keep him safe in that environment. Never mind how much it will cost to keep the people who will be assuring his safety safe themselves. What a waste of money!

Or is this just 0bama's way to get old joey out of DC? Worth it at any price?

Oh boy.  This is going to really give the Ukrainians that warm-and-fuzzy we're-loved feeling.  Not.  Maybe he's going over there to secretly cross over into Russia to get his plugs swapped out for some really nice new russian ones?

I don't think they could do that much reconstructive surgery on the face, however; some things are just too far gone to fix!
