From NBC News:
After almost a year of war, Kyiv is used to the unexpected.
On Monday the surprise was a welcome one, with Ukrainians hailing President Joe Biden’s visit as a historic moment that carried huge symbolism ahead of the one-year anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion.
Before news of Biden’s secret trip filtered out, residents of the Ukrainian capital reported closed roads and unusual traffic jams, stoking the social media rumor mill with suggestions of a high-profile guest. Few expected to see the president of the United States walking around the center of town soon after, an unannounced ambassador of hope that the Western alliance backing Kyiv’s defense against the Kremlin’s attacks can remain strong.
