According to Ukraine’s President Zelensky, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin will visit the capital Kyiv on Sunday.
The White House, however, has yet to confirm this.
It’s likely Zelensky will make an appeal for more heavy weapons during the meeting, which he earlier said are absolutely vital to Ukraine’s war effort.
“We will talk about the weapons we need and about the time framework for deliveries,” he said on Saturday.
Among the officials who have already travelled to Ukraine since Russia’s invasion are the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, who stopped in Bucha; the EU’s top diplomat Josep Borell; the leaders of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland; and most recently, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

His final stop will then be in Kyiv on Thursday, where he will meet Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky and Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
