On Tuesday, US President Joe Biden scheduled to meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Poland.
The visit comes just days before the anniversary of Russia’s complete invasion of Ukraine.
According to the White House, Biden will deliver an address in front of Warsaw’s Royal Palace in the early evening.
Biden will meet with representatives from other NATO countries in Eastern Europe on Wednesday.
He arrived in Poland on Monday evening, after travelling to Ukraine’s capital Kyiv under tight security to see Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Biden pledged Ukraine additional support in its fight to repel invading Russian forces.
For Biden, it was the first visit to Ukraine since the war began and according to the White House, the first visit by a U.S. president to a war zone without the U.S. military on the ground.
Biden last visited neighbouring Poland at the end of March 2022, about a month after the war began.
Then too he gave a speech against the backdrop of the Royal Castle, in which he assured Ukraine of his support and sharply condemned the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
This year, Biden’s appearance in Warsaw on Tuesday would coincide with Putin’s annual state of the nation speech.
Kremlin officials said his address would be largely about the “special military operation’’ in Ukraine and its effects.
