Joseph Biden, Vice President of the United States, arrived in Ukraine on Sunday, 6th December. Today (7th) he has already met with President Petro Poroshenko. But during this trip he will also have a meeting with Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. And tomorrow, 8 December, the American politician will speak in the Parliament.

At a joint news conference with Poroshenko following the meeting, Biden made a surprise announcement. He said that since Poroshenko is the Ukrainian leader, he talks to him more than his own wife does.

“I have been in your country four times over the past two years, but we have probably spent over a thousand hours in telephone conversations, and I communicate more with the President than my wife does with me. Perhaps they both regret it, ” quoted RIA from the words of Biden.
