Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky just shook hands with President Joe Biden at the White House, his first trip outside his war-torn country since Vladimir Putin‘s forces invaded.

Zelensky rolled up to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in an SUV Wednesday afternoon, climbing out the passenger door and immediately greeting POTUS and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden before heading inside for a meeting.

Ukraine’s president is in Washington D.C. because he’s set to address a joint session of Congress later tonight, but first he’s talking shop with Biden … and seriously dressing down.

It’s quite a contrast between fashion styles… Biden is wearing a jacket & tie, while Zelensky is wearing his signature green pullover and some jeans.
