A US government source said the president will thank the officers working in the Ukrainian direction

US President Joe Biden will visit the CIA headquarters on Friday. The president's visit comes at a time when his administration's support for Ukraine has drawn attention to the work of intelligence services that are usually kept in the background.

Biden's arrival is timed to coincide with the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the agency created after World War II.

At the department's headquarters in Virginia, Biden will meet with CIA officers who work in Ukraine to thank them, a US government official said on condition of anonymity.

Biden has established a more traditional relationship with the CIA and other agencies, after previous President Donald Trump repeatedly expressed doubts about the intelligence findings and criticized what he called the “deep state” of his opponents.
