Joe Biden is set to hold a press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at 4:30 EST on Wednesday to discuss the bilateral cooperation against Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine.

The puppet president and his wife Jill Biden welcomed Zelensky, who was dressed in his signature olive-green t-shirt, to the White House earlier in his first foreign visit since the Ukraine conflict began in February.

“I am in Washington today to thank the American people, the President and the Congress for their much-needed support,” Zelensky posted on Instagram after he landed. “And also to continue cooperation to bring our victory closer.” 

Zelensky will also address Congress following his meeting with Biden at the Oval Office.

The embattled Ukrainian leader complained that the $45 billion earmarked for Ukraine included in the $1.7 trillion omnibus package to be voted on this week was not enough.

“We are not in an easy situation. The enemy is increasing its army. Our people are braver and need more powerful weapons,” he said about the Ukrainian war.

“We will pass it on from the boys to the Congress, to the president of the United States. We are grateful for their support, but it is not enough. It is a hint — it is not enough,” he added.

Meanwhile, the U.S. southern border has all but collapsed as Title 42 protections, which compelled the mass rejection of illegal aliens from the border as part of the U.S. government’s COVID policy, are set to expire.
