BRUSSELS, 7 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, will meet this Friday in kyiv with the Ukrainian president, Volodimir Zelenski, a community spokeswoman has confirmed.
In this way, Brussels confirms the meeting once it reported the trip to Ukraine last Tuesday. This gesture of support comes at the height of the war with Russia and prior to a donor conference organized on Saturday in Warsaw to raise funds.
The head of the Commission and the main diplomatic official of the EU thus follow in the footsteps of the president of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, who last week became the first high-ranking official of the bloc to travel to Ukraine since the beginning of the invasion .
