The congressmen appealed to the Administration of US President Joe Biden to change the date of the visit of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington.

This was reported by the Voice of America .

From August 7 to September 20, Congress will be on vacation, making it difficult to schedule meetings with congressmen and senators.

“I don’t like that time at all. We sent letters to the president (Joe Biden) urging that this date be changed so that members of Congress could be here in Washington at one time. I hope the president will consider it. I know that he is very busy – this is the first year of his administration. But changing the date is not so difficult – and allow us to have a proper dialogue with the Ukrainian president, “said Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, co-chair of the Ukrainian Support Group in Congress.

Senator Ted Cruz also criticized the date chosen by Zelensky for the White House’s visit.

“President Zelensky will not be able to attract members of Congress who oppose Biden’s capitulation to Putin on Nord Stream 2 on a bipartisan basis. Apparently, it’s just a coincidence,” Cruz wrote on Twitter.

The day before, the White House invited President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to visit the United States on August 30.

Biden stressed that the visit of the Ukrainian head of state will confirm the US unwavering support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity against the background of Russia’s ongoing aggression in Donbas and the occupied Crimea.

In response to an invitation from the White House, Zelensky said he looked forward to a meaningful and fruitful meeting with Biden.

On June 7, during a telephone conversation with Zelensky, Biden invited the Ukrainian president to Washington. A few days later, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba clarified that the visit was being prepared in late July.

The White House could not name the exact date when Zelensky could meet with Biden. Later , the media reported that the visit was postponed to August.  

Zelensky will visit the United States amid an agreement signed between Biden and Merkel to launch Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and controversy in Congress over dissatisfaction with the actions of the country’s main Democrat, the Republicans.

    • Biden’s own comrade Psaki said that Ukraine should not comment on the agreement between Merkel and Biden and added that speaking with Congress would be bad too. It is no surprise that coward Biden changed the meeting with Zelensky so that Congress was out of session. Biden should have met with Zelensky even BEFORE he met with Putinka.

  • The problem goes deeper than just Biden. If Poroshenko was president of Ukraine this mess would never have happened. Zelensky and his corrupt circus did cost Ukraine reputation. Nevertheless, where are all the Biden- and EU-supporters who pushed us for so long? They are very quiet now. I hope GOP will win the Congress back and Zelensky will be replaced asap. We could still stop the transit through NS2, even after the pipeline is laid. Biden is stuck up Germany’s ass as expected, Blinken too. Meanwhile Russia complained about the ‘hostile nature’ of the US-German NS2 statement. In other words Putin is fine with the deal…

    • Very true and it is noticeable that the Putin mafia always proclaim that Russia is the victim. Just like with Crimea; they illegally invaded, kidnapped, tortured, raped, lied and killed Ukrainians but Ukraine is guilty for not giving occupied Crimea water.
      Where’s my vodka?……

      • Putin is a weak ass. Actually if he would have dumped plans for any further invasions after Crimea, he would be a winner. But after Crimea was so easy going he thought he could grab some more land. In the long run Russia could get fucked pretty badly because of this, in particular if Ted Cruz will be our next president.

    Bull fucking shit! He has done nothing to help Ukraine but plenty to harm it. This jackass lies whenever he opens his smelly trap. No wonder he found common ground with the mafioso dwarf. They lied into each other’s stupid faces and loved it.
