The Biden White House has now decided to send Vice-President Kamala Harris on a trip to eastern europe as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues to send a flood of refugees into the continent.
As Fox News reports:
The Harris trip is one of several diplomatic contacts between the U.S. and Poland, which has taken in around 650,000 refugees, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. President Biden spoke for nearly an hour with Polish President Andrzej Duda on Friday.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken will travel separately to Poland on Saturday, and a small number of U.S. lawmakers will also fly to Europe this weekend and will meet with Harris Monday.
Harris is reportedly now a key part of the Biden Administration’s attempt to reach out to NATO allies in the region.
