Draghi, Macron and Scholz Are Approaching Kyiv

The presidents of Italy, France and the chancellor of Germany will be joined by Romanian president Klaus Iohannis

On June 16, it became known that the arrival of the heads of state would still occur: Mario Draghi, Emmanuel Macron, Olaf Scholz were already on the train of the national operator Ukrzaliznytsya. Very soon, the presidents and the chancellor of 3 countries will meet with the 4th president — Klaus Iohannis, and after — with Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The official purpose of the visit of the heads of state is "a message about the unity and full cohesion of the EU countries." Yes, this visit is indeed a powerful signal for the aggressor country, but Ukraine has somewhat different expectations.

It is known that Olaf Scholz has still not fulfilled any of his promises regarding the transfer of heavy weapons. Therefore, at the turning point of the war against Ukraine, which is taking place right now, it would be time to dot the i's.  "Not only do we want to show solidarity, but we also want to assure that the assistance we organize, financial, humanitarian, and also when it comes to weapons, will be continued. And that we will continue it as long as it is necessary for Ukraine's struggle for independence," Olaf Scholz. 

Probably, Emmanuel Macron will talk about the fact that "Ukraine will have to negotiate with Russia," as he told reporters yesterday. "We will meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to go to the scene of the fighting where the murder was committed and hold the scheduled meetings. This city is Irpin," Emmanuel Macron.

We remind you that Scholz and Macron have not been in Ukraine since the beginning of the war.
