But we have given no guarantees as to their safety. A US official said Russia was notified of the visit hours before President Biden left. Bortnikov said that Russian and American special services continue to cooperate, including in the fight against international terrorism. The official Tass news agency quoted Bortnikov as saying: “This cooperation is ongoing. Naturally, it’s no longer at the level it used to be, so it’s not benefiting anyone.

This top-secret Biden visit came after 12 months of struggle in Kyiv. Biden also announced an aid package after meeting with Zelensky. He announced half a billion dollars in aid, saying the package also included more military equipment, including artillery ammunition and howitzers. During a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Biden said, “A year later, Kyiv is on its feet. Democracy stands. Americans are with you and the world is with you.
