John Bolton, President Trump's national security adviser, said he will travel to Kiev, the first trip by a top US official since Volodymyr Zelenskiy was elected as president of Ukraine, Reuters reported on Tuesday August 27th.

"I'm looking forward to my upcoming meetings with our partners in Kiev. We support President Zelenskyy's reform efforts and vision to create a stronger and more prosperous Ukraine," Bolton wrote on Twitter late on Monday, without saying when exactly he planned to visit the Ukrainian capital.

Zelenskiy, a television sitcom star who won in a landslide victory in May, strengthened his power base at a parliamentary election last month.
