During his two-day visit, Biden will meet with senior Ukrainian officials to discuss efforts to help stabilize and strengthen Ukraine's economy and assist Kiev in moving forward on constitutional reform, decentralization of government power, energy independence, anti-corruption efforts and free and fair presidential elections scheduled for May 25.

Washington's repeated policy failures in Ukraine have necessitated a US retreat without losing face, Rostislav Ishchenko, President of the Kiev-based Centre for Analysis and Prognosis, said. "I think that he [Biden] will now head to Ukraine to understand if the US still has a possibility to leave without losing face and how the Kiev authorities can perform the duty not to protect US interests in Ukraine, but the duty to cover up the retreat," Ishchenko said.

According to the expert, it has now become clear that the Kiev regime is unable to comply with the Geneva agreement signed with the United States and Russia last Thursday. In a bid to de-escalate the conflict, top diplomats from Russia, Ukraine, the United States and the European Union approved a statement calling on the sides to refrain from violence, extremism and provocations, disarm militants and launch a national dialogue on constitutional reform.
