One tradition that occurs at the State of the Union address is the president and first lady extend invitations to “about two dozen guests to sit in the House gallery to promote their priorities and values,” CNN reported, and — since President Ronald Reagan — those honored guests have typically been pointed out to help promote the president’s values. First Lady Dr. Jill Biden included the Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States, Oksana Markarova, on her list, and invited the ambassador to sit with her during the address.

tweeted. “Did y’all see FLOTUS Jill Biden’s blue dress? It’s beautiful,” a third person shared. The first lady’s support of Ukraine and the Ukrainian ambassador did not go unnoticed, a great show of solidarity amongst an important speech from her husband.
