President Biden traveled to Rzeszow, a Polish town that has become a hub for Western military aid to Ukraine, signaling U.S. determination to support Kyiv with high-tech weaponry to punish Moscow for its invasion.
Mr. Biden is scheduled to meet his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda, a day after both of them attended a NATO summit where members pledged to reinforce the alliance’s eastern flank, provide further military support to Ukraine, and impose high economic costs on Russia.
The two leaders are expected to focus on the growing refugee crisis, with the bulk of Ukrainians having crossed into Poland. More than 3.6 million people have fled the country, the U.N. said.
The battle around Ukraine’s capital continued. To Kyiv’s northwest, Ukraine’s military attempted to encircle Moscow’s forces, drawing closer to allow for ambushes. Ukrainian forces made territorial gains to the west of Kyiv, including in the town of Irpin, a battleground for weeks now. Russia made progress in Kyiv’s north and east, retaking the town of Izyum and shelling Kharkiv and Chernihiv.
