Washington (AFP) - Vice President Joe Biden will travel to Ukraine on April 22 to stress US support for Kiev and steps to improve its energy security amid a crisis with neighboring Russia.

During his meetings with government leaders and civil society groups, Biden will "underscore the United States' strong support for a united, democratic Ukraine that makes its own choices about its future path," a White House statement said Saturday.

The announcement came just a day after Washington unveiled sanctions against six of Crimea's breakaway leaders, including the official who signed the deal with Moscow to split the peninsula from Ukraine.

If Biden waits until the 22nd, he may have to get a Russian visa.

Very symbolic that he’s planning to visit on April 22nd. What liberal hero was born on that day?

Where John Kerry's diplomacy failed Joe Biden's comedy is supposed to succeed?

This is a new level of embarrassing. But it's not like this administration has a reputation to protect.

Biden’s value is less than half that of Moskova. There is no way the Russians would accept him in trade for Crimea.

Thanks! Although, calling him a patron saint, is kinda funny- considering, how his views on human nature, were so completely unfunny and anti-saint.

The Obama regime is run by idiots; both elected and appointed as advisors!!

Obama showed he was an ass with his puny “sanctions”. Kerry is a worthless person in all regards, as displayed by his trying to kiss up to the Russians by trailing them everywhere to get them to stop being ‘meanies’, and because of his efforts against Israel. .....Now, the regime thinks that Biden, ...Biden has any stature to persuade the Russians to back away from Ukraine? LOL Biden has no cache.

Apparently, Jumpin’ Joe likes to pretend that the opinion of the United States under the ineffectual Obama still matters to anyone.

It doesn’t.

This is not a VP duty.

Kerry is the one who should go.

But I don't think anyone likes Kerry...

Net is p'od...

the Saudi King also...

And Merkel...Well Kerry doesn't score any points explaining the NSA surveillance of her personal phone.

Etc, etc...

To prove that there is nothing that is so screwed up that the Obama Administration can’t make even worse?

If the administration were really serious, they would send Moochelle and her mom for a two-week vacation in the Russian-dominated Crimea, then welsh on the bill.

Biden will put on another clown show, making more ill-timed and incomprehensible utterances that make no sense to anyone. He is the epitome of the court buffoon.

"The Department of State warns U.S. citizens to defer all non-essential travel to Ukraine and to defer all travel to the Crimean Peninsula and eastern regions of Kharkiv, Donetsk and Lugansk due to the presence of Russian military forces in the Crimean Peninsula, and in Russia near the Ukrainian border."
I think Biden would fit under non-essential. Nothing like heading out to a country Russia is going to attack. Common sense isn't his strong suit. Payne this is how Obama is getting rid of him.

Oh goodie. When you need to send someone to a volatile area for diplomatic purposes, send the guy with the silver tongue.
