Biden in a blue and yellow tie and Zelenskyy in khaki: what the images of the US and Ukrainian presidents symbolised
During his visit to the United States, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy did not change the military style he has been pursuing since February 24. US President Joe Biden, for his part, assured of his support for Ukraine not only in words but also in image.
The politicians' outfits carried a deeper meaning than it might seem at first glance. Photos of the leaders were posted on the website of the Office of the President of Ukraine (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photos).
The President of Ukraine chose to wear a patriotic khaki sweatshirt by a Ukrainian brand with an embroidered trident for the official meeting. This was the first time he met with the US President at a high level without wearing a business suit, which means that Volodymyr Zelenskyy made a powerful political statement.
This choice of clothing may indicate that the leader of Ukraine is not fooled by the calmness of foreign visits, but reminds everyone around him that Ukrainians are fighting the Russian occupiers every minute.
Joe Biden met the president of an allied country in an official capacity. However, his striped blue and yellow tie may signal the US president's loyalty and interest in future cooperation.
Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that on December 21, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy travelled to the United States of America. This is the first foreign visit of the head of state since Russia's large-scale invasion on February 24, 2022.
After two hours of talks in the Oval Office at the White House, Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Joe Biden held a joint conference.
Following the talks, the US President expressed confidence that Russia would lose the war. According to him, Ukraine's victory will not be possible without negotiations with Russia.
