On Wednesday, President Volodymyr Zelensky took a train to Poland before continuing on to the United States.
Zelensky arrived by train at Przemysl, close to the Polish/Ukrainian border, as seen on video by CNN affiliate TVN in Poland. The time is not specified, however the filmed date is December 21.
Zelensky is then spotted waiting to leave in a convoy in a white 4×4.
Zelensky then reportedly took a flight from Rzeszow (RZE) airport to Washington, DC, according to TVN. Zelensky was spotted with Bridget Ann Brink, the US ambassador to Ukraine.
Zelensky is scheduled to make a dramatic surprise trip to Washington on Wednesday. He will use this trip, which will be his first outside of his country since it was invaded 300 days ago, to persuade his biggest ally to support further military and economic assistance.
IAEA says that Grossi, its director, will visit Russia on Thursday to discuss the Zaporizhzhia nuclear project.
IAEA chief Rafael Grossi will visit Moscow on Thursday to talk about nuclear security at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power facility in southern Ukraine, according to confirmation from the UN nuclear watchdog.
The IAEA announced on Wednesday that Director General Grossi will visit Moscow tomorrow as part of his ongoing high-level negotiations to quickly agree upon and put into place a nuclear safety and security zone around the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP).
Concerns about a nuclear catastrophe have been raised because of the plant’s frequent shelling attacks in Russian-occupied area. Both Russia and Ukraine have laid blame for the assault on the other.
According to Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Kremlin, there are no arrangements for Grossi to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin while in the country.
The number of missile attacks in the Zaporizhzhia region has grown recently. Oleksandr Starukh, the chairman of the Zaporizhzhia Region Military Administration, stated during a briefing earlier in the week that the current energy situation is challenging.
The Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant’s six units are all not in use. They are “in a partially hot and partially cold shutdown condition,” according to Starukh.
