Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called the trip “historic” when President Joe Biden traveled to Kyiv.
As the President moved through the city with Ukrianian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy the air raids siren went off and a photo was snapped.
Reuters reported that, “Air raid sirens blared as Biden, 80, walked with Zelenskiy through central Kyiv but there were no reports of Russian missile or air strikes.”
Below is a video and the photo. Look at Biden’s feet:

But the media was all about it.
Brinkley on Biden’s Kiev photo op: “Extremely significant … Zelenskyy has been called the Churchill of our generation, & Biden going there today, it’s going to be a moment for the history books. It’s like when JFK went to Berlin in 1961 … Biden did something really heroic” pic.twitter.com/1pYUBGI50z
