Blinken will visit Kiev and Berlin from January 18th to 20th, 2022, a State Department press release reported.
The trip will begin in the capital of Ukraine, where the head of US diplomacy will meet tomorrow with the president of the country, Volodymyr Zelensky, and with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba.
In his search for consensus with partners and allies, Blinken will travel to Berlin on January 20th to meet with the German Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock, and will then hold a meeting with the “Trans-Atlantic Quad” (United States, United Kingdom, France and Germany).
The United States says it will strengthen its commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of a possible invasion by Russia, an accusation that the White House has made for months and that Moscow denies.
The New York Times reported last week that Washington is considering supporting an insurgency in Ukraine in the event of a Russian invasion.
Some media even quote intelligence experts talking about a program used by the CIA to train Ukrainian paramilitaries.
