Journal Staff Report

KIEV, May 10 – U.S. President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin were invited to join the World Holocaust Forum that will take place in Kiev in September, Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko said Wednesday.

Bush and Putin have been separately planning this year to visit Ukraine, a country that underscores a growing geopolitical rivalry between the U.S. and Russia. But the invitation may lead to a situation when both leaders come at the same time.
