Poroshenko and Mattis will hold talks, and then they intend to make statements for journalists.

A visit by the U.S. secretary of defense to Ukraine, the first over the past decade, is made in accordance with previous agreements reached with the U.S. side during Poroshenko's visit to the United States in June this year. Mattis arrived in Ukraine on Wednesday evening.
