Meeting of the first ladies
The first ladies met in the school building, which currently provides accommodation for people fleeing the war, with the first ladies sitting and discussing at a table before the arrival of journalists.
During the meeting, Zelenská thanked Biden for her “brave deed”.“We understand what it means for the First Lady of the United States to come here during the war, when military operations are being held every day and where sirens are sounding every day.” declared Zelenská.
