We hear that…Ukranian President
Viktor Yushchenko will be in D.C. during the first week of April. A visit with President Bush is on his schedule, but will a joint session of Congress be? Word from an informed source is that House International Relations Chairman Henry Hyde and Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Richard Lugar have urged that an invite be issued, but Speaker Hastert is resisting.
What’s the resistance? Concerns about Putin? The question I’ve heard asked: Is Putin getting veto power over U.S.-Ukraine policy?
