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.

Hey Biden, didn’t you learn anything about Bengazi?
Think we can raise enough money to bribe them to keep him?
Now that’s the ticket! Send that walking, talking rectum over there for a few days and they will either be laughing their a$$es off at us or WWIII will have started.
If Biden waits until the 22nd, he may have to get a Russian visa.
Yeah well, right now Ukraine is imploding..not like Biden can do anything about it, he’s a moron
Talk about someone who doesn’t have any you know what. Maybe his Grandmother is a really nice person.
Send in the clowns.
Very symbolic that he’s planning to visit on April 22nd. What liberal hero was born on that day?
Like they haven’t suffered enough?
Can Bozo Biden even find Ukraine on a map?
Breaking news from AP, Ukraine sent in some troops, Russian supporters started shooting. Just what Putin wants, a shooting war.
The location of the conflict is Slaviansk.
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin - the patron saint of Liberalism.
This is a new level of embarrassing. But it's not like this administration has a reputation to protect.
Trade Biden for Crimea.
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.
I was going to post something, but you covered it perfectly.
Apparently, Jumpin’ Joe likes to pretend that the opinion of the United States under the ineffectual Obama still matters to anyone.
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.
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.
Oh goodie. When you need to send someone to a volatile area for diplomatic purposes, send the guy with the silver tongue.
