U.S. President Joe Biden stopped in Poland on Friday to meet with U.S. troops, President Andrzej Duda and Ukrainian refugees, in a bid to signal Western unity against Russia’s onslaught.

It comes as the U.K.’s Defense Ministry said Ukraine was pushing Russian troops back and regaining ground near Kyiv.

The Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy marked one month since Russia launched its full-scale attack by thanking his country’s armed forces, suggesting Moscow may not have launched its invasion if it knew the extent of Ukraine’s resistance.

Just miles from Ukraine, President Joe Biden saluted Poland for giving refuge to more than 2 million refugees who have fled Russia’s invasion, then he met with humanitarian experts on the ground about what will be needed to mitigate the growing suffering.

Biden said he had hoped to get even closer to the border but was prevented because of security concerns. Still, he said he wanted to visit Poland to underscore that the assistance it is providing is of “enormous consequence” as Europe experiences the biggest refugee crisis since World War II.

“It’s not stopping,” Biden said of the devastation in Ukraine. “It’s like something out of a science fiction movie.

In addressing the troops, Biden invoked his son Beau Biden, a lawyer and officer in the Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps who served in Iraq and Kosovo.

“There are hundreds of thousands of people like my son, like all of you. So thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,” Biden said.

The U.S. and its NATO allies have for weeks warned Beijing that efforts to outfit Moscow with arms or provide economic relief in violation of Western sanctions would result in unspecified consequences.

China has thus far refused to denounce Russia’s assault on Ukraine, and U.S. officials say that Russia has asked Beijing for help as it struggles to seize control of its neighbor.

“We would be very concerned if they were to supply weapons to Russia, or to try to evade the sanctions that we’ve put in place on the Russian financial system and the central bank,” Yellen said of China. “We don’t see that happening at this point.
