First Lady Dr. Jill Biden met Ukraine’s First Lady, Olena Zelenskyy, the first time she had been seen since Russia invaded her country. They met in Uzhhorod, a city with about 100,000 citizens. It was just a couple of miles from the Slovakian border, and former First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton applauded the trip.
It was a dangerous situation with an ongoing war and active shelling. Yet, Dr. Biden courageously appeared with the President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s wife.
Clinton tweeted that the visit showed “solidarity with Ukrainian families:”
‘The First Lady’s visit to Ukraine this weekend was an important gesture of solidarity with Ukrainian families. As Putin’s war goes on, our hearts are with everyone separated from their loved ones and raising kids amid conflict, one day at a time.’
Dr. Biden especially wanted to spend Mother’s Day with Ukrainian mothers and their children. She tweeted:
‘This Mother’s Day, I wanted to be with Ukrainian mothers and their children.
‘Over the last few months, far too many Ukrainians have had to flee their homes – forcing them to leave behind their loved ones.’
Ukrainians have increased the city’s population where the two met by two-fold, trying to escape the Russian war on their homes, according to The New York Times.
