Washington, April 13 - US Vice President Joe Biden will travel to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev to meet officials and members of the public April 22, the White House said Saturday.

In Kiev, Biden will consult with government officials on the international community's efforts to help stabilise Ukraine's economy and to assist Ukraine in moving forward on constitutional reform, decentralisation, anti-corruption efforts, and free and fair presidential elections scheduled for May 25, as well as on the latest steps to enhance Ukraine's energy security.

Biden will also discuss the latest developments in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists, apparently with the support of Moscow, continue an orchestrated campaign of incitement and sabotage to destabilize the Ukrainian state, the statement added.
