President Biden ‘definitely’ invited to visit Ukraine: Former President Poroshenko
Former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko says June is a vital month for Ukraine’s future.
After leaders of the European Union's three largest countries visited Ukraine on Thursday, one former Ukrainian president is inviting President Biden to travel to the war-torn country in the midst of a "vital" month.
"We definitely, and I, invite President Biden to visit Ukraine because, now, June is a vital month for Ukrainians' future," former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko told FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Thursday.
"This is symbolic, just to demonstrate that Europe is shoulder to shoulder with us," he continued.
On "Mornings with Maria," Poroshenko detailed Ukraine’s three major meetings with European and Western allies in June, including with the European Union Council, G7 leaders summit and NATO at its Madrid summit.

"We keep fingers crossed and [sic] waiting for the candidate status for Ukraine, for future European Union membership," Poroshenko said. "This is also the weapons. This is also the answer to the Putin blackmail. And that's why it's so, so important."
