- Zelensky touched down in Hiroshima on Saturday
- Biden approved allies sending F16s to Ukraine
- Allies needed approval because of sensitive American technology on planes
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky landed in Hiroshima on Saturday afternoon, marking his longest trip since Russia invaded his country.
He arrived in Japan shortly after President Joe Biden reversed course and gave European allies the green light to send F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine in its battle against Russia.
Zelensky will meet with Biden on Sunday as part of his campaign to shore up support among the Western allies ahead of a planned Spring offensive to try and drive Russian President Vladimir Putin’s forces from his country.
