Emmanuel Macron, Olaf Scholz and Mario Draghi arrived in Ukraine

French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi arrived in Ukraine, according to the Italian edition of La Repubblica. They travel to Kyiv on a train from the Polish border. The visit of the European leaders was known in advance from the sources of the German newspaper Bild, but no official information about the visit was disseminated due to security concerns.

“All of Ukraine hopes that Scholz, Macron and Draghi will come to the rescue - with more weapons and with an offer of EU membership,” the newspaper wrote.

Macron, Scholz and Draghi are due to meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. They will become the first leaders of the EU member states who came to Ukraine after February 24. Scholz had previously stated that he would come to Kyiv only if there was a reason: “I am not one of those who come for a short time for a photo shoot. In my case, it should always be about very specific things.

In April, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited Kyiv. During his visit, he promised to send 20 armored vehicles and new anti-ship missile systems.
