Ukraine's president, Viktor Yuschenko, meets with President George W. Bush at the White House on Monday.
Bush's spokeswoman, Dana Perino, said the two leaders will discuss how to reinforce democracy, security and national sovereignty in Ukraine. In addition, she said Thursday they will review Ukraine's efforts to become part of the Euro-Atlantic community.
Yushchenko's pro-Western coalition with Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko collapsed earlier this month. The two leaders have been feuding ahead of the 2010 presidential elections. They also have disagreed about how to react to Russia's war with Georgia last month.
The Kremlin has bitterly opposed the prospect of NATO membership for Georgia and Ukraine.
