President Bush is on a brief visit to Ukraine before travelling on to the Nato summit in Bucharest. Here workers prepare the red carpet.
On arrival President Bush received a guard of honour with his Ukrainian counterpart Viktor Yushchenko.
Mr Bush has said the US fully supports Ukraine's aspirations to join Nato.
He assured Ukraine that Russia would not be able to veto its membership.
However there appears to be disagreement within Nato.....
... French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said France would oppose plans to bring Ukraine and Georgia into the alliance.
Ukrainian protesters attempted to demonstrate against Mr Bush's visit and against membership of Nato, but were blocked by riot police.
