UN Secretary-General Will Come to Ukraine This Week

Antonio Guterres will visit Lviv/Odesa and meet with Volodymyr Zelenskyy

Reuters reports that on August 18, the United Nations secretary general will come to Ukraine. Antonio Guterres will visit the port city in the south of Ukraine. This visit will be symbolic, as the UN has facilitated the ships' ability to export grain from the ports of Odesa. The UN representative will go to Lviv after visiting the Black sea port in Odesa. UN spokesman Stefan Duzharri says that a business meeting of the secretary-general and the head of the Ukrainian state is planned in Lviv. Turkish president Rajep Erdogan can also join the meeting. The appearance of the Turkish president will most likely begin in an online format.

It is reported that the politicians will discuss the situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. The situation around the nuclear facility is getting more dangerous every day. At this point, one of the station's units had to be shut down due to heavy damage.

Let us recall that the UN secretary-general has already visited Ukraine. On April 28, Antonio Guterres and the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, held a press conference.
